'Scarlet Runner' watercolour (sold)
'Fall Vines' dyed textile (sold)
 
Cooler weather gets me thinking of certain plants - Virginia Creepers and Sunflowers. Our Virginia Creepers haven't turned red yet so any new art work, containing them, will have to wait. However, I have started painting sunflowers. Not my own sunflowers as we tried a new variety this year and all they have done is grow tall. A ladder would be needed to paint them and perching on it with a paint palette doesn't sound fun! Look for the sunflower painting soon but for now note the difference you can create using two different mediums (watercolour and dye painted textile) using the same subject matter.

Id be hard pressed to determine which I like better, they're both so rich with colour!
