The first wild orchid collage is taking shape; the orchids emerging from limestone crevices.
Butterfly orchids grow among limestone outcrops. Gardening on acid soil, I can relax in the knowledge that my future lies in cultivating orchids in my art not my garden.
'Trout Stream in Spring with Honey Bee' 24 inches x 18 inches. The full title and a special request.
'Trout Stream in Spring', the first fresh water fish in my textile collages. An interesting exercise in suggestion.
The commission 'Queen Anne's Lace with Milkweed' is finished, approved and ready to ship.
A visit to Dogbite Studios in Falmouth yesterday for the making of a video for Export Cornwall by Defacto Films http://www.defactofilms.co.uk/
