Three Virginia women who belong to local gardening clubs put on a dazzling display of interpretational floral arrangements that they modeled after paintings.

According to Virginia's, the project was for an event called Fine Arts and Flowers held at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in October.

Lynn Waymack and Carol Ray both collaborated on a birds-head display of Tomaselli's Woodpecker, while Doris Crowell depicted Rousseau's Tropical Landscape, reports the news source.

"Normally, when we design we bring in stuff from our don’t know what you have to work with until you get there," Waymack told the news source in reference to the museum work space and the flowers that were supplied to them. None of the women could bring their own materials due to concerns about bugs.

"It’s a transient art," Crowell told Village News, "But, that’s what I like about it."

Flower enthusiasts who are keen on the idea of building a painting-inspired bouquet (but perhaps a little less interpretational) can arrange a Van Gogh-esque sunflower display to liven up their living space. According to, Vincent first painted these blooms as a decorative piece for Paul Gauguin's bedroom.
