Sunshine came softly through my window today - followed by a walk amongst the wattles and back to our own backyard, where Alice is cultivating a penchant for parsley. Then the rains came.

Pictured above: a new work for a new season, as yet untitled and not quite finished in time for the first day of spring, but close to it.
The work is acrylic on two canvases and its dimensions are 37.5 x 15 cm. The vintage needlework to its left is by my late aunt, Eileen Elizabeth Klein. I inherited many of her doilies and placemats (but sadly, not her sewing skills) and have incorporated design motifs from several of them into recent works. One of them is HERE. These and other related paintings will be exhibited at Queenscliff Gallery in the near future.
A series of progress views of the diptych follow directly. They include its sister work (also currently untitled and considerably further away from resolution).
