Some Lovely Flower Art
I came across some lovely paintings by the American artist Lulie Wallace . On checking out her website I found that I loved her work - do take a look.

And, of course, this was my favourite - I wonder why?

And while on the topic of flowers I thought I might show you one of my favourite flower paintings by Charles Renee Mackintosh (1868-1928). He was a famous Scottish artist and architect and this painting is of 'Petunia Walberswick' and was painted in 1914.

It was drawn/painted between 1914 - 1915 around his home in Kent and Sussex (although he came originally from Glasgow). He painted over 100 typically English flowers and over 40 paintings still survive. They are known as the Walberswick Collection and have a very Japanese influence and are quite unlike any of his other Art Nouveau works. This is a typically British flower and can be found all over the UK. I just love its wild deep colours. This pencil and watercolour drawing is especially for Bethany. xx
This week I have lots of unfinished business to deal with - choose which of my little row of wonky houses will go winging its way to my swap partner - then actually pack and send it off being the most important as Thursday is the deadline. This morning is my knitting class and I should have finished my 'fairisle' socks, which unfortunately I have not and also I am half way through a small sewing gift - just for me!
Luckily Mr Whizz Kid is again away saving the world so I shall have plenty of time over the next few days to spend in my lovely new sewing room. Have a lovely day to all my virtual friends and followers.
