Petal People

I don't know how to paint. I can't draw to save my life. But, for some reason, I find it very easy to compose the human figure made from pressed leaves, herbs and flowers. It doesn't quite make sense to me but I am having a blast doing it! I love the movement that came to this girl when I added her hair, made from pressed thyme stems from my flower box. I am interested in figures that have no facial features but convey emotion through their bodies. I think this one does just that.
