More about this piece
Linda Bennion at Queensgate Studios gets up at the crack of dawn every Monday and goes to New Covent Garden to buy flowers for her fortunate students to paint. The studio always smells delicious and is filled with colour and interest all year round - hyacinths, peonies, delphiniums, catkins, pussy willow, tulips, stargazer lilies, flowering artichokes, Chinese lantern plants. She grows headily scented Margaret Merril roses on her balcony too, their terracotta pots foaming with trailing lobelia. One day she had brought back some sprays of ripening blackberries from the market which I absolutely loved. This painting was the result.
I've used this image to create both a tea towel and a greeting card, available to buy from my Home Shop.
