 My garden yields beautiful ginger flowers this season. I couldn't help but paint another beautiful ginger in an inanimate object.

  2. There is something about the contrast of a delicate flower springing up from sharp metal that is just timelessly pretty. I love it!

  5. Hi Ms. Melissa!
    I love seeing your pictures
    your colors are special, I mean, the colors that you use to paint your artwork are "very yours"
    I like the combination: inanimate object-"alive" objet.

  11. You definitely have a green thumb! And I agree, it really interesting the mix of living and non living / recycled elements!

  12. Well, it's only missing the smell - mind you I'd have to sneak into your garden at night to pinch one - I went up to a place just south of Macksville and North of kempsey - a place where it never ever rains :0 well almost!
