Scrolls and Proteas
Scrolls and Proteas – An original oil painting created in my Mountain studio in Olinda, Victoria, Australia
by Alicia Cornwell B.A. Fine Art Dip. Education. Fine Art
A larger work measuring 105cm x 105cm x 6cm (framed), this is an original oil painting on stretched canvas featuring some locally grown proteas and Leucadendron.
We are very fortunate to live near Victoria’s largest flower growing and distribution area in Silvan, Victoria. Although seasonal I enjoy sourcing flowers from these local flower growers in their roadside stalls for my paintings. Pop a few dollars in the honesty box and they are all yours. These proteas were freshly cut and full of colour!
My current works in oils are also exploring my interest in Vintage and Antique items and fabrics sourced from my extensive range I have collected over many years.
Before moving to painting full time, I worked as an Antique dealer / Vintage merchant supplying beautiful items for interior design. As a result I have quite the collection of special pieces and am enjoying mixing their unique qualities as subject matter into my artwork.
To the back is my interpretation of a beautifully patterned Art Deco rug.
This painting comes with a Certificate of Authenticity in a large Tasmanian oak frame with a wire hanger to the back ready for your wall.
Buyer to pay for courier on this painting as measures over 1 metre.
OR welcome to collect from my studio in Olinda, Victoria, Australia
