New Art: Needle Flame Pussyflower

"Needle Flame" Pussyflower, watercolor on paper 2017

The Needle Flame Pussyflower has both masculine and feminine anatomy (just like some women), and is considered a bisexual flower (also like some women). It is known for it’s fiery color and spicy scent.

When I saw this Protea at my local florist (shout out to Juniper Flowers) I knew that it would inspire my next pussyflower. This spunky, orange friend has so much personality! I had been wanting to create a flower that had more sass and less sweetness. I’m so pleased with how this one blossomed. Thank you to everyone who gave suggestions on instagram, and I’ve finally chosen a name for this spunky flower. “Needle Flame” is a combination of my two favorite submissions.
