Painted flowers for Valentine's day

Painted flowers for Valentine's day

The beautiful vases of flowers that artist Joanne Short captures in her stunning colourist oil paintings of Cornwall create a wonderful opportunity to give flowers for Valentine's in a different way.

Three vases of flowers lined up on the windowsill overlooking Padstow harbour create a beautiful foreground to Joanne Short's vintage style art poster of Padstow in Cornwall. Blue Iris, white tulips and yellow daffodils are presented to us with an uncluttered background of the green sea. It is a way to enjoy the spring flowers all year round and the poster literally radiates the energy and life of the early summer in Cornwall.

Joanne's wonderful painting of Mousehole that features on the vintage style art print is a way to gift three perfect pots of geraniums. White, pink and red geraniums sit on a windowsill overlooking the fabulous Cornish harbour of Mousehole. The patterns and lines add a sense of the exotic, we feel the energy of holidays in Cornwall and beyond in this piece.

If you are looking to give your loved one a cooler palette of colours then look no further than Joanne's painting and vintage style art poster of Coverack. Purple pansies, blue iris and bluebells are presented to us on a blue tablecloth overlooking Coverack harbour.

However you choose to celebrate Valentine's day we think that one of the vintage style art posters from our highly popular range will go down really well, and the flowers featured in them are going to last a long time and remind you of many happy memories too.
