Flower Pressing on my early Friday’s

I would normally find myself on my early Friday’s sitting to scribble and sketch, mainly to keep my eye/hand in. I like to sketch quickly and mostly from my surrounds (not a photo) on these afternoons. But today I have been playing with the old age tradition of pressing flowers. Oh I have some fab ideas with this traditional craft.

So on my walk yesterday I picked some flowers and I’ve started trying this age old technique myself and I think I will combine them with my miniature art gouache paintings.

It also would be so cool if you can follow me and join my email list to stay connected and I will share more of my world, work and any current collections I am working on with you.

My pickings…

Vincent VanGogh and the Seasons

My fascination with the work and life of Vincent Van Gogh makes pure sense to me and even more so after watching this video from the National Gallery of Victoria.

The way he links his art with the seasons in nature resonates with so many of us artists; that is often our learning ground and it is a free resource that we can obtain and learn from at any time.

I do hope you take the time to watch this and enjoy if you haven’t already.
