Nasturtiums and Vintage Wallpaper

I love to treasure hunt at op shops - its the thrill of finding that special item! Last week I was very fortunate to find two rolls of unused and still in original packaging wallpaper dating to the 1970's
I use these old patterns as inspiration for my paintings particularly as backgrounds but mostly as a foil to the botanicals that I paint.
This painting (currently available at Bluethumb) has many design elements from the 1970's from fabrics and pottery.
Nasturtiums are the perfect choice in this Vintage colour way as Orange and Yellow were the IN colours at that time!
