The beauty of flowers has been admired by artists throughout the ages, and they remain a source of inspiration to this day. From the vibrant rose to the delicate petals of a daffodil, flowers have been celebrated in art for centuries, and we are celebrating the beauty and symbolism of flowers in print with our Flowers in Print blog post!

Last week's #floralfriday social media post highlighted the work of the iconic Georgia O'Keeffe. Her close-up flower paintings, such as her famous "Black Iris" and "Red Canna," symbolize femininity, softness, love, and sexuality. Her art reminds us of the power of nature and how it can inspire us in so many ways.

For centuries, botanists have relied on the work of artists to accurately document and illustrate the plants and flowers we know today. These observations that were used for science, really allow you to appreciate the beauty in the detail and skill of the artist’s work.
