This painting has been inspired by the bountiful gardens surrounding our home in Olinda on top of Mount Dandenong Victoria.

Due to lockdown here in Victoria, I have spent many hours studying the flora that has been bursting forth from the rich volcanic soil in our garden and the Dandenong Ranges Botanic Gardens that are very close to our home.

To the background is my continuing theme of Vintage Fabric. The piece that brought inspiration to this painting is a very old Sanderson linen from the early 50's - a remanent from a ladies' boudoir chair. The colours are bold, broken down and punchy and I love the pop it brings to the background, creating a juxtaposition of what is actually in the glass vase in front.

It holds fish, daffodils and perhaps something else - the journey of personal discovery I have been working alongside and through during this time.

This period of time has involved a lot of introspection personally and as the seasons turned into Spring I have felt a new flourish to life and what it holds. This painting for me is a symbol of that growth, floating fish and dissociation tapping at the glass, flowers bursting forth to light, colour and freedom within one's self if you dare do the work and look for it...
