A most joyous way to begin the year is with the flower-filled calendars created by the uber-talented Kathy de las Heras. These stunning images have brightened the day for those lucky enough to have received them. Rumor has it this is the last year – we hope not!
Using a scanning technique, Kathy captures the images in a most sophisticated photographical form of botanical art.
These are some of Kathy’s lovely images. Narcissus are the harbinger of spring…think Wordsworth’s Daffodils.
How handsome is the rich beauty of Asclepias, otherwise known as milkwort? Carl Linneus named this genus after Asclepia, the Greek God of healing.
Romantic, fragrant, twining Sweet Peas, Lathyrus odoratus, ruffle across the page.
Kathy fully exploits the vibrant colors of the poppies in this dramatic composition. All these images are less than their counterparts on the calendar. The scanner isn’t up to this level of contrast and rich blacks
A most elegant bi-colored tulip unfurls on the page. Now what a happy way to start 2014! Such pleasure you have given us, Kathy! Thank you.
Happy New Year Cheers!
