Wild Stitch Art

I used some of my wildflower painting designs as embroidery motifs for a set of napkins while stitching as a passenger – travelling home to Western Australia.

I think the translation worked quite well. Any wonkiness reflects the state of the roads not me 😉

Wild One!

To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hands, and eternity in an hour.  William Blake

Wild One

I called this watercolour and ink painting ‘Wild One’ because all of my attempts to identify the wild flower have failed.  I drew and painted it from a lone bloom that appeared in our Perth Hills garden in Spring.  It was small (about 2cm in diameter), delicate in appearance, on a thin, relatively long, upright stem that swayed in the breeze.  I’ve learned that it helps to identify flowers to include other plant parts!  I’ll be on the look out for it next spring.

It is one of the ‘Wildflowers At Balligar’ series and a fine art card is available here.  There’s more shameful (shameless?) self promotion on my new ‘Shop’ page here.

If you recognize the flower please tell me what it’s called.
