Colors of Colina: Burgundy

As I have been doing my Humans with Bouquets series this year, naturally, I have developed a relationship with some of the people who have participated. Colina is one of those people, and I am lucky enough that she is local, and graciously agreed to shoot with me a few more times. Aside from the unique beauty that she possesses, to me, Colina inspires color. She has an incredible wardrobe and a lovely color sense, as well as a beautiful style. What more could I ask for? I decided I wanted to create a human-focused color series. With the coming of autumn, the possibilities are almost infinite; so, as a prelude to the season I chose the color burgundy. I simply told Colina what the general color theme of the bouquet that I was making would be, and here are the results!

Portable Party Wall Dots

The kind folks at Chive sent me these Wall Dots that I had been lusting after for some time. They would be perfect for permanent mounting, but I wanted to make them party-portable, and so mounted them to a 4'x 4' (120cm x 120cm) piece of veneered plywood that I painted with chalkboard paint. The final result was great, and it can easily be put in the car (ok, SUV) for transport to events and parties. The possibilities are nearly endless with the vast selection of hues that are available (not to mention the varieties of flowers that can be paired). I chose dahlias for both texture and color, and this particular rendition is really simple and playful.
