Blue Carnaby and the Retro Barkcloth
Oil Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang
Signed on the back
A depiction of some of my favourite collectibles from my Antique dealer years, a tea cup from the 1970's - English Elizabethan in the "Carnaby" pattern.
Succulent cuttings from our cold climate garden give a sculptural quality to the design.
To the background some special fabrics from the 1960/70's predominantly in blues and greens.
The designs from these eras fascinate me and I am currently enjoying combining them in my oil paintings.
