Anything Wrong with These Flowers? The Truth will Shock You!

The ability to arrange flowers is a talent, not every one of us can make a dozen of red roses look good in a vase. While some sees this as something boring and mundane, others take flower arrangement seriously as a career. But for this Belgian artist, flowers are more than just tangible beauties.

Born on 1948 and raised in Merksem, Antwerp, Belgium, Pieter Wagemans is a devoted artist. To make a difference on still life, he further enhanced his talent specializing in flower compositions. And for Pieter, flower painting is indeed challenging. To capture that special moment, it requires a lot of patience as well as discipline.

 

Just take a look at this marvelous artwork that seems to be real!
