Casa Blanca Inn in Farmington, NM. I immediately fell for the simple yet bold carvings and knew I wanted to recreate the flower motif in some fashion. It was really hard to not be inspired by the beauty of the New Mexico landscape and culture.
Outcome: Voila...a new Mother's Day card! (Or it could be birthday, thank you, etc.) Instead of using just one flower image, I decided to create a cluster of blooms. I drew from the landscape to determine the color palette as well. The colors of New Mexico are absolutely breathtaking!
