A field of wild flowers and dandelion clocks reach towards the deep blues of night and glowing starlight, as if each seed is lifted by the wind to join in dance with the great sea of sky above.
Decorative art is both useful and beautiful. This work could be of use by giving pleasure. It might calm some people, yet irritate others!
Those who dislike it may feel it is aesthetically deficient, or that the picture is no more than a somewhat conventional and uninspired representation of the natural world. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder... The decorative arts are often viewed of as less culturally significant. This work helps me reflect on the utility of art, and its value.
For me, flowers are better given as art rather than growing and cutting them for gifts. Apart from the enormous negative environmental impact of growing, selling, storing, and distributing flowers, I far rather plants are left to live their life cycle that leads them to flower then seed.
Decorative art has greater value than perhaps I sometimes give it credit for.
