posy

This painting has slipped through my blogging net!

I have forgotten to show you this orange posy of garden flowers collected and painted when summer was at its height.

I grew Marigold’s for the first time this year and I’m undecided about them – they look gorgeous, giving a pop of colour to the garden but they smell weird and die quickly once picked for the house.

Nasturtiums are a favourite to paint and grow. Grey, orange and pink are my current colour crushes. Throw in an Anthropologie mug and a genuine vintage sheet (from my childhood bed no less ! ) and I hope the result is a happy and bright painting.
