The Infant Christ Pressing the Wine of the Eucharist

7 year Art in Bloom participant

Floral Products Used: gerbera daisy, hydrangea, carnation, kangaroo paw, curly willow, geranium, myrtle, aster

My brother reminded me of the Christ, having golden curls as a child. He photographed my arrangement. My encouraging sister said, during a past AIB, “Oh, I love to paint with flowers.” My father calls me afterwards to congratulate me.

Floral Arrangement Inspired by...

bust portrait of Christ as a child with light wavy hair, with a high hairline, with head turned slightly toward PR; Christ squeezes a bunch of grapes in his PR hand, with the juice running into a white footed bowl; Christ holds a small bunch of grapes in his PL hand, which are reflected in the silver cross-topped domed cover in foreground; small portions of view of a landscapes in top corners; portrait in a tondo, with flowers in each corner
