These oil paintings called “Fading Blooms 4” and “Fading Blooms 5” are inspired by Michaelmas Daisies. I love all the Aster family and these little lilac flowers are a last cheery farewell to the summer. So, I gleefully pick them from my cottage inspired garden in Sussex, UK, and put them in vases around the house and studio. When they are about a week old the petals start to curl, as though they are part of a curled paper quilling set. I find this fascinating and find them more beautiful when they are in this state. The curled petals are perfect symmetrical curls with equidistant space between each revolution of the petal, so I couldn’t resist studying them.  All my paintings begin as a photograph, and then drawings and studies in my sketchbook from both life and photo’s.  When I draw flowers that are dying the shapes change so quickly that I need to capture the shapes with my camera first.
