Floral Painted Vases Inspired by Vera

I've always been a huge fan of Vera Neumann, the legendary designer and artist (1907–1993).  Her philosophy was that fine art should be accessible to everyone.  I love her use of color and whimsey and how her art touched everyone from Marilyn Monroe to almost every household in the US.  Scarves, napkins, sheets, tablecloths and clothing were just a few of the things she mass manufactured.  She was everywhere!  I painted these vases in her style (which has always served as inspiration to me) with my stash of glass vases that keep piling up in my pantry.  I know you have a few, too.  Why not use them as a canvas?  Remember to paint everything and always Make Your Mark!
I may use these for my pens and pencils
 Love how they look together!
