Floral Inspiration: Still Life

I'm kind of obsessed with floral still life paintings right now. Especially the work of Arnoldus Bloemer (appropriate name, no?) and Cornelis de Heem. They are completely different from one another but I love Bloemer's vibrant colors and Heem's contrasts against the black backdrops.
A still life of peonies, roses, honeysuckle, poppies, a crown imperial, rhododendrons and other flowers in a terracotta urn on a ledge by Arnoldus Bloemer.
