Artist: Elizabeth Hawes
Following an accident, I had to learn to appreciate different things in life. My garden became my haven. With this painting, I celebrate my and all gardens – and some of my favourite flowers – fuschias, geraniums and shasta daisies. I have attempted to convey joy, in the lushness of the rich red of the geraniums, the delicate structure and bold colours of the fuschias and the whimsy of the shasta daisies. I was inspired by Margaret Olley, my favourite painter.
