Oil on Canvas
50cm x 60cm (approximately 20 x 24 inches)
Painted in my Chiltern Studio, September 2011.
I love to paint flowers, but loathe to cut them from the garden, I almost weep when I pass the poor specimens wrapped in plastic and foil at the supermarket or petrol station. It seems so cruel not to let them finish their full cycle as nature intended,so I construct my floral paintings using images cut from magazines, photographs, still-life arrangements using fabric /plastic/paper flowers and memory.
