I have been day dreaming about Australian bush flowers lately. I once couldn't put them and pretty into the same sentence. Well, they just happened to be sooo Australian and I say this because I connected them with a landscape that was dry, dusty and dirty. But now as I get older I see the beauty in this and plan to begin working on an Australiana range of cushions soon.
In the meantime here is some inspiration from artist Tanya Stubble with her Acacia series.
Visit the site to view full size images of her work. It's definitely well worth it.
