Part of a series where I am exploring flowers (native and introduced) that are grown commercially in the area where I live in the Yarra Ranges. I am particularly interested in the organic flow and turn of these more harsh florals and the bright colours they produce. This painting came about when I was gathering them to create a bouquet, I put them in a Vintage Fowlers Jar to keep them fresh and became interested in the reflections they created in the thick glass. And so a preparation became a final work...
