Green Carnations: Mixed Media Collage

“You’re too modest.” Mrs. Hudson beamed at him fondly.

“I assure you, madam, modesty has never been one of my crimes.”

–A Study In Garnet: Ladies of Baker Street Book 1

Green Carnations is a fond send-up of a fictionalized guest character in A Study In Garnet–Mr. Oscar Wilde. Wilde was known to sport green carnations in his jacket lapels, and the flowers have come to symbolize being gay. This mixed media collage features green carnations decorated with hand-drawn rainbows against a glimmering emerald and turquoise background, a fitting tribute for this much-beloved queer icon. Six sparkling faux gems embellish the text that reads, “Modesty has never been one of my crimes.”
