How wonderful to see Kate Middleton the Duchess of Cambridge yesterday at Wimbledon, wearing the most beautiful white, short-sleeve dress with a colourful wildflower design.  Included were some of my favourite wild flowers; poppies, cornflowers and daisies. It did remind me of my original oil painting My Heart Laughs In Flowers.

Wild Flower Dress

The dress was reported to be from Catherine Walker & Co a leading British Couture House who has included wild flower prints in many of its  stunning designs.

Everyone can connect with flowers. A certain flower variety, the scent, can be a trigger that transports us to a memory. I am fascinated to experiment with colour and texture to recreate this emotion in art just like fashion designers do with clothing and florists with bouquets.

This perfect summer dress celebrates the simple joyous qualities of wildflowers dancing in meadowlands. –  My Heart Laughs In Flowers
