If Star-Systems Were Flowers...
The Cosmos is Here, Folks
Howdy! Welcome to the gallery page of the
If Star Systems Were Flowers Series
This series of paintings was inspired by combining two seemingly opposite topics - Star systems and flowers. I’m both obsessed with flowers/nature/native habitats and cosmic topics like Starseeds, galactic history, forbidden archaeology and astrology. So… why not combine the two?
Each group - flowers and star systems - have essences and symbolic meanings behind them based on folklore, organism behavior, archetypes, mythology, starseed archetypes, channeled & intuitive information, spirituality, and the natural order of things. Care was thought into these paintings, and the resources that helped me are at the bottom of this page though most of the creation process was intuitive. I used flowers that are found almost anywhere, recognizable even by plant non-enthusiasts.
See if you can spot the star/constellation within each painting, hidden some way amongst the flowers.
The star-systems I chose for the first half of the series are the ones I have studied or heard about the most. If there’s enough interest I’ll continue on with other star-systems!
Pleiades - Smooth Blue Aster
Lyra - Sunflower
Arcturus - Morning Glory
Sirius - Blue Lotus
Orion - Forget-Me-Nots
Mintaka - Water Hyacinth
Polaris - Yarrow
Beta Centauri - Wild Rose
Andromeda - Euphoria aka Spurges
Hydra - Common Mallow
Antares - Orchid
Reticulum - Ghost Pipe
Draco - Thistle
These two aren’t star systems, however I felt they were relevant to the series and many others would resonate with them.
Lemuria - Echinacea, Purple Coneflower
Atlantis - Hepatica aka Anemone
Let me know which flower star system resonates with you the most! And let me know if I’m missing anybody, I’m adding to the series!
I am offering prints and other fun products with these designs on them - you can find them in my shop under the special category called “If Star Systems Were Flowers…”
