Botanic Art Melbourne My art work

My painting in the Art of Botanical Illustration

I have already told you that my painting of Cullen pallidum was accepted into the Art of Botanical Art Exhibition. (Don’t know what I am talking about? This post will explain more about my painting.) Today I was able to see it hanging there, amongst world-class botanical art works.

Do I look happy? And proud? ūüôā

Today I didn’t have time to explore the works properly. I am going back, and then I will¬†tell you more about the other works. However, if you live in Melbourne or nearby, don’t wait for my review. Wander into the Exhibition, but be prepared to be amazed!

My painting was accepted!

I was so chuffed to pick the painting up and see that little blue dot on it, showing that it had been accepted for the exhibition, “The Art of Botanical Illustration, 2014”. Big hugs to everyone who wrote messages of support, or even just thought them. I think they made the difference!

So now my painting of the plant Cullen pallidum is at the framers, being dressed in all its finery!

So, if you are in Melbourne or happen to be passing through, make sure you get to the exhibition. If you are a fan of botanical art, you will be in seventh heaven, because the standard of works is always very high.
