Beautiful Blooms for the Show

glorious white arrangement

Peonies - featuring the French Flag


Firstly, just a little reminder our artist Christine Reilly will be giving an art demonstration at the gallery from 10am tomorrow (Saturday) until 1pm in the afternoon - we would love to have a big crowd to see this wonderful artist work her magic -its enthralling to see a painting develop, and we are looking forward to it very much - hope you can come along!  all welcome.  The Jan Powers Farmers Markets are also on, so it will be a good excuse to come to Manly for the day!

I just love flowers and I was thrilled when Linda from Bliss, Blooms and Bouquets delivered her special flowers for our Exhibition Opening.  We had a gorgeous display of white flowers, from roses to lillies displayed in a very frenchy urn!  then the beautiful waratahs which were just the most luscious, red colour which enhanced the paintings perfectly, as we all know how much Christine loves her touches of red in her paintings - then the piece-de-resistance (is that how you spell it? probably not!!) but the  most exquisite Pink Peonies - they were stunning and now I know what all the fuss is about with this amazing flower - it is now firmly my favourite as well.  Hope you enjoy the images....

Hi Janet, the flowers are lovely, the added touch of the French flag on the vase is a fun idea and looks great, cheers Katherine
