Bouquets to Art - zenatona and DK Designs' Style!

This year is the first year I'm attending the Five Star Aloha Gala event in probably 5 years. This one is not to be missed. I was fortunate to be allowed to have a display table of my work and I asked the coordinators and Board of Directors of the Hawaii Chamber of Commerce if I could share the space with my good friend Debbie Friedrich of www.zenatona.etsy.com. I thought Debbie's work really personifies the "Aloha" spirit we all share! She has graciously donated 3 of her wonderful bursts of juicy "aloha" prints for the silent auction & raffle. We're also going to be sharing a table and I thought it would be great to create clay floral pieces that go along with her beautiful canvas art prints.

I haven't completed all the arrangements, but I started playing around with some of the flowers/concepts along with zenatona's canvas prints. The first one I decided to play with is "float". It's one of my absolute favorite prints she created.

Anyway, I consider this our very own Bouquets to Art concept, my interpretation or inspiration from her amazing canvas art prints. I think Debbie and I should take our show on tour! LOL. :) I'll share more images as I complete the pieces. If you're going to be in the San Francisco area and are interested in attending the Five Star Aloha event, please visit, www.hccnc.com for ticket information.

Thank you! It's funny people tell me I should do Bouquets to Art at the DeYoung Museum. I kind of like my version of it because I get to work with art that speaks to me. :) I can't imagine doing this with anyone other than zenatona!
