I find it satisfying to have sequential blog posts, so that I can tell a narrative. I have been posting about my holiday through Victoria. But now I have to jump away from that story to start another.
I am a botanic artist. I am very pleased to be able to participate in an exhibition organised by the Friends of the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne. The concept, “From the Forest to the Foreshore” was right up my street. So before I went away I was feverishly painting shells. 2 paintings needed to be finished in time to get them to the framers. All went well and today I dropped them off at the exhibition space. How exciting is that?
So, if you live in or near Melbourne, love paintings of shells, butterflies, birds and their nests, frogs, pinecones, ferns etc, etc, etc, then come along. The art work will be stunning! It starts on Saturday and goes until Sunday 13th October. All the details are on the flyer below.
