In 2023 I made a goal to paint (in Procreate) each month's birth flower. This is August's birth bouquet! The August birth month flowers are the gladiolus and poppies. Gladiolus symbolizes strength, healing, victory, and honor. Their stalks can grow up to five feet tall and they come in many colors including white and yellow, as I have depicted. Poppies (said in the voice of the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz), come in many sizes and colors and have been known as the symbol of remembrance but also, because of their opiate qualities, the poppy has been associated with symbols of sleep, peace, and death/resurrection.
All prints are “made to order” locally here on the Central Coast of California and are:
hand signed by me, Jenna, in acrylic
packaged with care, and shipped flat from my studio
I print on flat, unstretched matte canvas or bright white matte cover paper which can be framed with or without glass, or stretched over wooden stretcher bars (canvas only). Unsure of what size you need? Take a look at my Print Size Guide where each size is paired with their respective aspect ratio. My goal is to offer you a variety of sizes to fit the needs of your space. In order to do that, some sizes of the art have been cropped ever so slightly and will differ slightly from the image you see online.
Your print will go into production and ship within 3-8 business days. I ship prints securely in a rigid envelope, or box, depending on the size. I recommend taking it out immediately and laying it flat in a safe place or framing it straight away. Most pieces work well with a simple gold, white, or light/natural wood frame with a white mat. Please visit my FAQ page for framing suggestions!
