From the Bower at the Johnston Collection: Update #1

The watercolour miniatures I've been making for the forthcoming show, Patterns of Collecting/From the Bower at the Johnston Collection, have been accumulating at a faster pace than I've had time to post here. (The exception is Love Knot, directly below, which was previewed on 14 February in our Valentine's Day post).

To make amends, this is the first of a series of posts documenting the remaining works in the series.

Completed works, L-R: Untitled, 2018, 12 x 9 cm and Love Knot, 2018, watercolour, 9 x 7.2 cm

I’m eagerly anticipating joining forces with an extraordinary lineup of artists in the upcoming Small Works: a Survey, including the inestimable Julie Keating and Debbie Hill, who also curated the exhibition. 

Included on the invitation is a detail of my painting Pirate Queen, seen below in its entirety:
