About this Group

Still Life FloralsWelcome to Still Life Florals! This group is for your beautiful floral classical STILL LIFE arrangements.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING VERY CAREFULLY...Thank you

You may upload 3 images per day.

To qualify as a STILL LIFE, we need to see an OBJECT or an arrangement of objects with your CUT FLOWERS. These might include objects contrasting with your flowers in texture, such as: fruit, cups, bowls, pedestals, glassware, books, basket, pearls, etc. No living creatures. Flowers with dreamy, soft filters/textures and attractive elements are most welcome AS LONG AS THEY ALSO INCLUDE A CONTRASTING OBJECT.

YOUR OWN PHOTOGRAPHS, YOUR OWN PAINTINGS AND YOUR OWN DRAWINGS ONLY please. Minor digital alterations to your works may be permitted - see ** below. Wholly digital works are NOT accepted.

GROUP RULES....PLEASE READ:
1. Flowers must include other objects (see above for ideas).
2. No living faces or people but figurines, statues, photographs, are acceptable if not prominent in your picture.
3. No living creatures, e.g. animals, birds, insects.
4. No ugliness, dark or dreary and no skulls or other images of death - this includes dead flowers as the main subject.
5. NO GROWING FLOWERS, NO FLOWER BEDS, NO GARDENS, NO FLOWER POTS, NO FIELDS, NO WOODLANDS...these do not qualify as still life! Please note that potted flowers, e.g. growing chrysanthemums, growing roses, growing poinsettias and such like used for indoors and gifts are not floral arrangements nor are they the genre of still life that we are looking for. NO BOUQUETS unless arranged with a contrasting object.
6. No added words. Words may show if they are part of the subject, e.g. title of a book in your still life.
7. NO PLANT LIFE UNLESS IT HAS FLOWERS.
8. The floral arrangement must be the main focus of your image.
9. CONTESTS are for GROUP MEMBERS ONLY.


We want to promote each other's works, so please check the discussion tab for threads for that purpose. Participation is definitely encouraged. Please look in on Discussion pages and leave messages there as appropriate, for example, where images have been featured. Liking, Favouriting, and Commenting is also encouraged and very appreciated!

CONTESTS.....Please join the group before (or when) entering contests so that you can keep up to date with group messaging concerning the contest. Only group members will, from January 2022, be featured on the home page, even if winning the contest. The winning images shown on the home page will the the top three MEMBER'S works.

Thank you! I enjoy seeing all your beautiful still life flower images.
