May - Lily of the Valley on Emerald


Lily of the Valley painted on Emerald, the birth flower and birth stone for May.

This precious birthstone is prized for its rich green colour and rarity. Emeralds are renowned for their beauty and elegance and for centuries, were thought to cure diseases and restore exhausted travellers. The May birthstone not only symbolises the renewal associated with spring, but also represents truth, wisdom, intuition, foresight, loyalty, abundance, success, and love.

The Lily of the Valley is commonly associated with purity and sweetness, making it a popular choice for weddings and religious ceremonies. Its delicate white blossoms symbolise innocence and purity, while its sweet fragrance evokes feelings of joy and happiness.

Those born in May are said to be ambitious and trustworthy. They are very social and can make friends wherever they go.

This mixed media painting is A5, created using acrylic, watercolour and pencil. Each painting in the set is finished in a beautiful double mounted, bespoke frame in navy blue by Anchovy and Oyster.

Finished frame size 305mm x 377mm

* A very small limited edition run of each birth flower will be available as A5 prints later on in the summer. These will just be prints, unmounted and unframed. There will only ever be 12 framed originals.
