Recently, I drew this wilted rose for the Works on Paper Exhibition shown at The Corner Store Gallery in Orange, NSW. There were over 45 artworks on display and although I didn’t get the chance to visit the show, I have been told that it was quite an event, with many of the Orange residents braving the winter chill to attend opening night.

I have been slightly obsessed with wilted flowers lately, I really like the texture and the oxidised colours they tend to adopt once they reached the end of their life. One can’t help but think about the life that they’ve had and ponder on their short life span.

See the range of work on show here. Wilted is available as a greeting card and giclee art print from my etsy shop.
