Painting: "Childhood Memory Tree"

Today I'm taking the plunge - I'm showing you one of my paintings.

"Childhood Memory Tree" was exhibited locally in March.

My mother has always kept a wonderful garden. In this painting you can see some of the flora which made up my childhood, both in our garden and on our farm, in south east Queensland: guava, honeysuckle, frangipani, scotch thistle, pomegranate, dandelion, hibiscus, buttercup, and plumbago - along with a Wanderer (Monarch) butterfly, and a Willy Wagtail. That's me in the apron, with my younger sister.

"Childhood Memory Tree" is in acrylic on ready-to-hang 45 cm (about 18") square canvas, but is now in my sister's private collection!
