Dogwood || Dogwood floral art print
In the Victorian era, a bachelor would offer a flowering dogwood sprig to someone he felt affection towards and would wait for their response. Someone keeping the flower signaled an interest or mutual attraction, but a returned flower informed the bachelor had they best look elsewhere. This tradition influenced one of the meanings for this flower as a symbol of unrequited affection.
I rather like the idea of giving and keeping our own dogwood sprig as an act of self-love.
This illustration was created as part of a 30-day art challenge, and each print is linked with a song. For this print, it's Phoebe Bridger’s “Motion Sickness.” (https://youtu.be/9sfYpolGCu8)
