what’s the name of this flower?

Recently we had lunch at Cafe Gratitude. The food was super yummy, and something else struck me: this beautiful flower they had on their tables.  We’d never seen anything like it.  Does anyone know the name of this flower?

Anyway, I was inspired to create this repeat pattern.

Inspiration from BHLDN

Today I found inspiration from a website I discovered via the Wiley Valentine blog, which my friend Laura Pauli recommended to me yesterday: it’s called BHLDN. Beautiful clothing and accessories aside, the brand has a unique way of styling their pieces.  One photo in particular, of the Twirled Sweetheart dress, caught my eye, so I decided to paint this little watercolor of it.

Here’s the original photo.

Here’s my watercolor.
