We have had a lull in the wet weather here in Bendigo so it was a good time to get out and see what wildflowers have survived the deluge.
Bill and I were happy to see more flowers out along with the ones we discovered 3 weeks ago. Some were weather beaten or eaten as shown here:
While others are thriving in the spring weather:
A glorious display of white daisies sitting amongst eucalyptus met our eyes as we travelled today to Dunolly, Victoria.
We had to stop and endeavour to capture some of this beauty with the camera.
A friend suggested I put a coin against my art works to give scale…I should have thought that myself!
Well here are two beautiful mini vases from Lyn at #thestudiohandmade with dried Australian wildflowers mixed with non native flora.
From the huge photographic cotton banners that I have hanging in #KineticKennington through to miniature floral arrangements, I love creating art inspired by our native wildflowers.
When I requested a friend to make me some miniature ceramic pots I was gobsmacked at the selection Lyn from #thestudiohandmade created.
They are stunning, here is one piece I have added dried wildflowers to for a forthcoming exhibition.
KINETIC KENNINGTON ARTIST SHARON GREENAWAY.
Sharon took great delight as well as many hours of work to create these cotton banners for the outdoor exhibition at Kennington Reservoir, Bendigo Victoria.
Each banner features photographs montaged into designs of local floral wildflowers from the region, with each banner having its own theme: Golden Yellow, Red/Green, Pastels, Cream and Plop!.
The exhibition was organised by #thecityofgreaterbendigo #creativecommunities and #explorebendigo.
Five artists were selected from a number of applicants to create works for this unique “Art that Moves” exhibition.

I am thrilled to be part of this pop up outdoor exhibition in Bendigo for the month of August 2022.
Art that moves is the underlying theme to this free exhibition.
My works hang in the trees, flowing in the wind, mimicking the native wildflowers natural movements.
Each of the five banners feature different flora from our local area.
Bendigo or Fairy wax, greenhood orchid, rosy heath myrtle, milkmaids, early nancy rice flowers, hakea decurrens and pimelea daisy are a few to see amongst the large artworks.

Summer Gold will be going to a its new home in the Yarra Valley.
So heartening to know others appreciate my art.
As well as ‘Embracing our Wildflowers’ I have been asked to add a new photographic art piece to the winter exhibition at the Market Building Winter show, Castlemaine, Victoria.
