Memories of a late summer bouquet
Good morning! Happy weekend to you!
Nope, I haven't left Melbourne. This is a pic from just before Covid hit in March.
A friend I were fortunate enough to pop over to Tassie for a weekend to catch up with my relos and explore the beautiful Huon Valley - and we also did a flower arranging workshop with the wonderful Lisa Kingston of Lisa Kingston Flowers.
Her flower farm is perched atop a hill overlooking Bruny Island and the D’Entrecasteaux Channel. The homestead was built by her parents and sitting in that incredible garden with incredible views it really is like being in a fairytale - a truly magical experience!
We were also happy to discover that we could in fact fly our newly arranged bouquets back to Melbourne and well, those flowers have provided SO MUCH inspiration for the works that I have created since. Can you tell?
This work "Late Summer Bouquet IV" was inspired by the echinacea flowers in Lisa’s beautiful garden and I’m so pleased to finally be able to offer it to the world - both the original artwork and as a limited edition print.
It is truly one of my favourite favourite pieces from this year and I have to admit, I did consider keeping it. Not only does it remind me of Lisa’s beautiful garden (and the last time I left Melbourne), but it was an easy process to make this work (sometimes they aren't so cooperative!).
