1973 Irish Moss (available)
50 x 50 cm / 20 " x 20" oil on canvas
The moss in this painting came from our roof, very kindly picked out of the gutters by the noisy Jackdaws at 6 in the morning and deposited around the house!! It was lovely and green and soft so I thought just the thing to incorporate in a Still Life painting. The eggs came from our local organic gardens, overseen by retired nuns, who also keep an interesting assortment of chickens, hence the array of colours. A couple of spotty Quail eggs some English Lavender from our garden and some leaves from a neighbours shrubs complete the picture.
