I just came across this beautiful oil on board of ‘Snapdragons’ which I have fallen hard for. Snapdragons remind me of my mother’s garden growing up, always full of colour. I used to love squeezing their ‘mouths’ to make them talk to each other.
I collect a lot of art like this; unframed, just as it was painted, bare on board or on canvas. Even if I do come across them framed I crack the frame off; the frames’ moulding is the one element which will always date. I love how you can place these pieces on mantles or shelves instead of having to hang them on the walls.
Ah, art, you are good for the soul.
