Just playing and planning a layout for a Margaret Olley inspired piece. I had previously done the printing on fabric with Ali George . It is a weed. Because it is printed on the colour that I want in the piece ,the ' flesh ' pink. Not too sure what Margaret meant by flesh it skin colour or raw internal flesh!! which I assume would be more red. Then there is the vase made of an Australian design fabric with some native Grevellias. The crochet doily alludes to the domestic which she imbued into her art in her later years with the rooms of her home being the inspiration to set up her still life's for painting. She was certainly born in the era of crochet doilies being the norm for decorator items in a ladies home.
