Flowers in January? Yes, with Stencils ...

... thanks to the magic of stencils, flowers can bloom any time, any place!

Before Queen Anne's Lace was a 9" x 12" stencil at, it was a silkscreen.  I had the screen made by a professional; then I used it on stretched canvas in a layered painting.  The design is essentially the same, as you can see below.

Above:  the silkscreen print.

Blooming Where Planted is another of my floral-themed 9" x 12" stencils; below, I've used part of this three-section stencil as a collage element.  It's a stencil section that had been stained as result of a number of earlier art projects.  I began to like the stained version so much that I decided to mat it....

The original stencil looks like this:

Blooming Where Planted

Today's third floral image -- above -- is on the cover of a greeting card.  Its background was made with Prayer Flags (9" x 12") and its blue foreground is a partial print that I made with yet another 9" x 12" stencil of mine, Thistles.
