The Arrow Through the Urn

August 1, 2008

Remember how I was attempting to do a Hogarth Curve with the urn from the
Talbot County Historical Society.  Well the more I looked at the arrangement the more I saw the need to put the Latin Lady roses above the Stargazer lilies as well as below them, in essence making a diagonal line.  You can see the roses are straight as an arrow pulling in opposite directions.  Because you don’t see the red of the roses from the front except for the brims, looking at the arrangement on the diagonal gives you a great perspective of color.

Hint:  Some times you have something in mind for your arrangement and the flowers tell you something else.
