Inspiration

I love Cornflowers, they make a wildflower patch zing!

This is my 2nd-in-series inspired by Botticelli's Birth of Venus. Thallo is the ancient greek goddess of spring, protector of new growth - her name means 'bloom'. In his painting Botticelli has purposefully decorated Thallo's garment in beautiful cornflowers - I adore his execution of them & sketched my cornflowers from his painting, paying attention to the blossoms (his genius, simple brush strokes) and intertwined stalks & buds, which I then attempted to apply, in this cut Lino print, to form the heart.

In folklore, cornflowers are worn by young men in love

So here they are, fashioned into a lover's heart...
