Beautiful Faces of a Flower

Beautiful Face of a Flower, digital art print,

Its early o’clock on a Saturday morning. No birds chirping yet. No bees busy either. Just me. Its nice and peaceful. Sounds of zen in the background, the water in the aquariums gently gurgled as I sip my delicious coffee.


It reminds me a little of the quote from Elise Blumann, about Stillness from my post  “Beautiful Findings Zen VI


Faces of Flowers

Oh.  So whats this about faces in flowers?

Trial Runs

A few weeks back I had a trial run,  a play with this pastel watercolor. Then turned into into digital, just exploring the options.



It made me think of more –  Possibilities.

That is such a Beautiful word. “Possibilities”

Don’t you just love it!?

Using my Imagination


I wondered how I might alter Faces. Of flowers and other shapes and subjects….

How I and others might see them.


I began to imagine.

The act of creation


And then began to create.

First I imagine;  with the possibilities flickering in, to light up the path.


You’ve already seen the first initial blue/green  Chrysanthemum  in Softly Antiqued Mums   and these below,  are the follow ons from that first one.

Same Flower – Different Faces


What I love is the last 3 images are the same photo…. and yet each now wears a different face.

We can interpret something distinct from each.



Also,  not ‘classically beautiful’  like the traditional big bouquet of pretty roses, yet these seem timeless.

Charming.     So,   Full of Wabi Sabi. Zen.




Beautiful.  These Faces of a Flower.

The act of creation, in any media is a fascinating and magical process. I simply love to create. Expressing in color, line, tone, texture - as if, they were words upon a page. Creating a uniquely me, interpretation. Enjoy More of my "one-of-a-kind" expressive art at and,

  1. I love your perspective and taking several looks at the different faces in one flower, very inspiring….and I love your cornflower. I have been inspired by all your photography, I am always taking photos but it has helped me to look deeper and in different ways, thank you for that!

    1. that is so rewarding to hear… I’m really pleased to know these images can influence/impact the way you and others see things. Not that YOU dear M, need much influencing there at all.
      funny… I thought the cornflower would be the least popular… its just so, ‘funky’ Glad you like it ! thank you Margaret. your river friend 🙂

  2. Oh yes possibilities….this word really takes us to the moon and back and beyond. The things we can do with possibilities and the courage we carry with possibilities. I love every flower face you did Debi. It is amzing to look at one object and see a lot of it in one sitting. Amazing just amazing!
