I’ve been chatting to blogger Anne Lawson for some time now, and I knew she was an aussie, like me, but I had no idea she was an artist. Tonight, for the first time ever, I visited Anne’s online shop, and was stunned by the beauty of her botanical drawings.
I know this will sound a little strange, but the one that I kept going back to was a black and white sketch of a head of garlic. I’ve had a bumper crop this year [of garlic] so that could have something to do with my garlic obsession, but have a look at this pic and tell me that this is not beautiful!
Anne is also fascinated by feathers, and shells, and gum leaves… and draws them with exquisite skill. But… I just couldn’t go past the garlic, so I bought it.
