I’m a long time fan of Emily Winfield Martin’s and I’m totally smitten with her new series of portraits. They are, in Emily’s words:
Flower portraits, meaning portraits of girls/ladies with flowers, but also loose personifications of the flower itself (or what I imagine my favorite flowers might be as a human girl.) These are inspired mostly by my own flower garden and my mother’s garden, pretty girls, WPA/1930’s & 40’s oil portraits I admire, and though the execution is different, the idea surely has something to do with C.M. Barker’s Flower Fairies, which I’ve loved all my life.
You can see Emily’s works in progress on her blog, The Black Apple, and purchase her previous work from her Etsy shop.
