As a member of The Artisan Group I am occasionally presented with opportunities to gift celebrities. Recently I was chosen to gift Drew Barrymore. For those of you who are active on my Facebook Fanpage, I just want to say “thank you” for giving me your opinion on which print to send to Drew! I decided to go with this image of the Ranunculus. It is an image that I shot specifically with Drew in mind. I didn’t want to send her one of my images that I have used over and over, I really wanted to give her something fresh and new.
I tried really hard to capture something that would reflect her style and personality. She strikes me as a woman who is down to earth, cheerful, and fun, with an edge of romance.
As you can see from the images above, I decided to mount the print on one of my 2.5″x3.5″ Eco-mounts. I probably could have gone up to a 5×7, but I felt that with such a sweet and delicate flower (which is surprisingly hardy), the print really needed to reflect that innocent and sweet look. Don’t get me wrong, I think that this baby would look AWESOME as a 20×30 or larger, but I can just imagine this little one surprising someone as they hang up their keys, or popping up to say hello by a light switch. Or maybe maybe nestled in a wall gallery of black and whites? I don’t know. There are so many possibilities!
