Blue Ribbon and Rosette for Best Mass Arrangement - 2005

New Orleans, Louisiana

The New Orleans Museum of Art sponsors Art in Bloom each spring and over 500 people participate in interpreting paintings and sculpture in flowers. There is a competitive section which I have entered every year.
This painting, "Woman with Writing on Hands" was assigned to me and I had to interpret it in a flower arrangement. When I left home with my flowers I had a totally different design in mind, but saw some dock (the red stuff that looks like fingers) along the interstate and stopped and cut it to use so when I put together my arrangement design it became a mass arrangement. It won a blue ribbon and an award for Best Mass Arrangement.

You are a true artist. I think the flowers really reflect the picture. I would not have known what to do.
Guest 19-Mar-2005 07:52
How awesome, both that image and your arrangement. Congratulations, Coleen. I bet you had a great time and it sounds like a fun thing to do. You are multi-talented indeed.

Fantastic Coleen. I bet you have lots of fun too. Congrats on that blue ribbon. It's been years sense I've won a prize for something.
That picture is very demanding of my attention. She looks so serious yet, she is content in her presentation.
Remarkable job Coleen. GMV!

Very cool SP! Nice!
Neal Nye18-Mar-2005 12:48
You are so talented. This is a gorgeous arrangement, showing the same sense of design and balance as your photos do. They, by the way, deserve blue ribbons as well.
Gayle P. Clement18-Mar-2005 12:05

Congratulations. You certainly seem able to find ways to occupy your time, don't you. Very active and involved woman.
Karen Stuebing18-Mar-2005 10:29
Congratulations. The flower arrangement does a find job of intrepreting the painting which is kind of disturbing.

How creative of a contest! I love this.. and you're right.. not only does the dock resemble the fingers but the way they reach gives that feeling as well.. very nicely done, Coleen and congrats !

Firstly your photography in my opinion, is getting better all the time, secondly you have shown your enthusiasm for your task with this arrangement & your very deserving of your blue ribbon. Well done, Coleen.
Dennis Steinauer18-Mar-2005 06:38
Beautiful work, Coleen. You're quite an artist -- photographic and floral -- and probably in many other ways. Classy.
Gary Winters18-Mar-2005 06:36
Wow, congrats! I would have been clueless to interpret that photo with flowers!
Guest 18-Mar-2005 06:08
