I was asked to create an artwork by Thornton Brothers Roses of Thirlmere. The white Dahlia stood out against the rusty old veggie trough. The shadows created another character which looked like a little old lady with her hat. To show off the flower best, I detailed her to be bending over in her tu-tu. The bud became the girls head and the stems were her arm, tying up her mothers shoe laces. You can see her holding onto the the ballerina for balance.
