Blush Of Youth
As the inspiration for her May arrangement, floral designer Lindsey Taylor’s selected a small, intimate oil painting, “Ella” (2007), which depicts Mr. Richter’s 12-year-old daughter reading. I found calm in her quiet solitude and comfort in the nurturing care he has taken to capture it. To establish a simpatico mood, I paired a matte gray ceramic tum- bler by Tracie Hervy with a tall pitcher from Bloomist, whose brown glaze picked up the paint- ing’s deep chocolate background and the amber wisps of Ella’s hair."
