As you will see from the paintings at the moment on the site, I am obsessed with the flower Echinacea. They grow in the garden of two friends and collectors of my art work. I love the way they grow so neatly and then splash their petals outwards before eventually drooping down. It seems to go well with my vigorous use of the palette knife, and I can sweep the knives, small and very large, with lots of paint on to the canvas. There may be many more of these to come!
