Sharon's Garden - Begonias in the rain

Painting Begonias from Sharon’s garden on a rainy Autumn day .

An ordinary visit to a beautiful garden always creates an extraordinary time!

Suzanne's succulent garden

The prettiest succulent garden perched on the edge of a concrete driveway.

Those colours - a mix of lilac, sage green, grey ,the blush of pink……

I will be busy here for a few more weeks. Happily.

kate's garden

Kate’s garden is a profusion of colours, plants, dogs, chickens, weeds and love.

For the month October Kate welcomed me into this incredible garden and let me paint flowers and plants. A happy place. Thank you Kate.

Joy's Garden

Flowers picked in Joy’s Garden.

Joy lives at the end of our road. I always walk past her house and see her tending her small garden. She was delighted when I offered to paint her garden for a couple of weeks. I was delighted too. It was a wonderful couple of weeks.

The studio smelt of Nasturtiums.


art in the garden

'Art  in the garden' workshops start in May.

Classes are held in the pavilion nestled in the Australian Plant Section of the Botanic Garden. It is wonderful to work looking out into nature. For our first class it rained lightly after tea.

The workshop is not a class to make art; it is a class to make mistakes, to rework, not to make finished pieces
