A quick note from the woman behind the flowers, V:

 

These foliage faces aren’t my original idea by any means; many before me have tried their hand at them. But I love them because they’re free, fun and therapeutic! It’s as easy as taking a walk and picking up sticks, leaves, grass, and maybe “borrowing” some flowers from your garden or a neighbor’s. Then it's just about sitting and creating! I built mine on a white background because I knew I’d take photos, but personally I think the sidewalk or a sand beach would make for a more therapeutic version! The point is to not get wrapped up in worrying about if it's good enough, or if it looks like a real person. Just play, and when the wind blows you can start all over again.

 

Having said the above, I found it more of a challenge creating foliage faces for people I know! Would their personality come through, would they be able to see themselves in my creation in any way…and, gasp!…what if they didn’t like it! In capturing each person I channeled both physical characteristics and, in some, exclusively inner energy. While I'm not sure I got anything exactly “right”, I’ll take the risk, because the bottom line is I had fun when I stopped worrying about what anybody would think.

I would LOVE to have a face done in flowers! Not only am I obsessed with flowers, I also love and collect unique pieces of art, and would love to have something like this at home. I’ll even pay! :)

I LOVE the foliage faces. All of your work is outstanding. Best wishes and keep up the good work. I am interested in getting one of the faces done - maybe of my granddaughters - maybe ME!?
