Botanical Paintings
from the Kew Collection
Sat 28 August 2010 - Mon 03 January 2011
Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art Kew

The Hidden Treasure exhibition holds the focus upon aspects of plant life that exist beneath the soil. In this show my two paintings of the purple tall bearded Iris germanica 'Superstition' and the white flowered Lilium regale will for the first time be shown side by side. Painted as a pair, each work shows the life size plant with corm and bulb respectively, and in situ. Each work is over 5ft in height.
