Garden of Delights: Flannel Flower 2018

My absolute favourite Australian native flower… in fact, just my favourite flower in general! It is like a cosy hug, with it’s soft fuzzy petals and centre, in a soft cream with hints of sage green at the tips… what is not too love! I have combined them with a rather unappreciated honeyeater. Not particularly cute nor delicate, this honeyeater has one redeeming feature and that is his eye shadow which is of the deepest blue. Combined with a blue and white vase, what’s not to love.

This painting was part of my Ginger and Honey exhibition at Michael Reid Sydney
