Another sneak peak
Here’s a little sneak peak of some more work in my upcoming show. Yes folks, more pigeons. The text on the vase is from a little gem of a book I found one day whilst randomly wandering around the state library. It’s called “The Flower Garden in Australia” (a gardening book for ladies and amateurs) written by a Mrs Rolf Boldrewood back in the 1890s. It is a delightful little book and the way she writes about the flowers is both beautiful and amusing. This vase is about the Camelia, and I’m currently finishing off another one on Hydrangeas. I’ve always loved hydrangeas. They’re so old fashioned, and they remind me of those funny little swimming caps women used to wear back in the ‘olden days’!
