DESCRIPTION

I'm in the mood for painting still life flowers in vases at the moment and I have been keeping a constant supply of native flowers in my studio to paint. Sometimes I can find what I'm looking for at the local florist, but more often than not, I have to do a bit of "community pruning" after dark around my neighbourhood. The striped vase reminds me of a burglar costume. (Possibly because I have a guilty conscience).

This painting features Banksia, Pincushion Protea, King Protea, Leucadendron and gum leaves.
