Sweet & Wild Soft Purple and Gold Aster FlowersWatercolor with Pen & Ink inspired by Idaho wild flowers. Created by Nicolet Laursen
I went for a run through the Boise foothills shortly after a soft rainstorm. I had to stop and take photos of these adorable flowers. They look a lot like daisies, but they are purple with gold centers called Aster Flowers. These wildflowers can be found in big clumps all over our foothills.
I came home and painted these flowers and flower buds with watercolor. Then I had all kinds of fun with some pen and ink to finish them off and give them some character. The pattern repeat was created in Photoshop from a scan of my flower paintings.
I'm happy to announce that you can now invite these sweet & wild flowers into your home! Roostery has some great household products including pillows, tablecloths, bedding, napkins and more. For those of you who love to sew and craft, you can purchase the fabric on Spoonflower
