Flowers to paint
Few flower arrangements are selected with so much love, care and attention as the flowers for the last goodbye. To express feelings and say something that can no longer be expressed with words.
After a funeral, some flowers may be taken and dried. But the majority will wilt, turn brown and eventually be discarded. Another step in the process of saying goodbye and letting go.
Miriam has found a way to create a very personal keepsake with these flowers. The funeral flowers form the raw material for paint and ink in order to capture a cherished memory on canvas. For example, she can paint a portrait of the deceased with the dyes from the flowers.
This creates a unique and personal painting to your liking that is made with a lot of love and attention. It is also part of the grieving process, where a tangible memory can still be cherished.
