from the artist:
I look at this painting I mentally thank the artist Michael
Taylor whose class I attended in Grafton NSW in 2005.
He taught us the technique I used to write the word on
this painting. Thank you Michael Taylor.
Hybiscus is from my back garden. The folk who laid out
the garden must have loved hibiscus plants as there are
three in the front garden and three in the back, all different.
This particular one grows very long branches which reach
far up into the trees beside it. On the end of each branch
are these frilly pink fllowers.
vase was bought as a wedding gift but somehow never got
given. Eventually I started using it myself. I would never
have bought it for myself but I enjoy using it as it is
very heavy, is nice to handle and it plays with light.
It reminds me that we should sometimes buy lovely things
