The Betty Woodman Vase

Just recently I changed out the arrangement of the glazed earthenware "Japanese Lady" Vase by Betty Woodman at the Denver Art Museum.  My friends, Judy and Liz, and I change the arrangement every few months.  We design the arrangement according to the season and if there is a special exhibit going on.
In this case, we used pale pink and a bright pink peonies.   The wall behind the vase had been painted a bright, deep orange in keeping with the color scheme of the Yves Saint Laurent collection that is on display thru July 9th.  Being that pink was one of Laurent's favorite colors, it was only natural that we went in that direction.  For artificial peonies, they look pretty spectacular!
With the Van Gough exhibit coming to the Denver Art Museum this fall, you know that the Woodman Vase will have an explosion of sunflowers in it.
