Painting at Anastasia Casale’s Sag Harbor Florist Shop, in All Its Glory on Mother’s Day

Recently, I was helping out on Mother’s Day at the Sag Harbor Florist, NY,  Anastasia Casale’s beautiful and popular shop this past May. It was sheer pandemonium as everyone flocked starting at 8 am to gather their FLOWERS in tribute and love to their moms, grandmas and every lady deserving this beautiful ritual gift celebrating the devoted acts of mothering. The arrangements were magnificent.  Everyone’s flower choices really expressed their own or their mother’s taste and personality. What variety! Their were practically no flowers left by end of day! I have been painting there for several years and Anastasia Casale’s and her staff make one arrangement more beautiful than the next…. Bravo Anastasia! Here’s a peek!

Arrangements start a long day of Mother’s Day orders….

A Lucky Mom received this beauty!

Arrangements in multiples have always been great to paint!

Luscious Flowers are ready for a close-up!

Voila! Many color decisions and a joy to paint this beautiful arrangement by Anastasia Casale…… Sometimes our “Babies” are flower arrangements and paintings! We celebrate “creative mothering” of all kinds! Thank you Anastasia!
