Warm colour from Cold Geneva



I have been looking forward to seeing Felicity's exquisitely delicate drawings up close and personal, and when I opened the clean white envelope from Geneva (I am very quick to clear the postbox after what happened to my card from Charlene!) there it was, my very own original Felicity Grace botanical. Her artwork looks ready for print in a fine art book - from the subtlest variations of tone and colour to the even splattering of the background, every detail is just perfect. Even the two bird stamps are colour co-ordinated and look quite in their element with the oak leaves and acorn.

On the other side, her trademark little snail, and two daffodils - she's eagerly waiting for Spring to arrive in freezing cold Switzerland. Spring over there means Autumn here, and I'm not at all ready for that, sorry Felicity, I'm selfishly hanging onto summer for a while longer, but I'll have your lovely oak leaves to remind me of what there is to look forward to!

As always, Felicity's exquisite leaves are even perfect in their imperfections. What a delight all her botanical drawings are!

Felicity, these are great and of course I want to encourage you to do a series so I can have an entire book of them.

Brilliant dimension in your leaves, Felicity, a breeze could blow them right off the paper. You have such a wonderful talent for botanical painting.
