Florets - Floral Quote - # 75 - by Paula Pryke




" One of the reasons I adore autumn is it gives me an excuse to use more colour, and particularly to enjoy the more vibrant colours in the spectrum. The fading light levels make us naturally drawn to the warmer, richer colours of nature and as our mood turns to heavier choices for food, so does our taste for colour and heavier decorations. My work throughout the year is always inspired by texture, but never more so than in this season."

Ingrid, I'm having a bit of a catch up this morning, since I was working over the weekend. Seeing these beautiful flowers in such an interesting composition has given me a good start to "my" weekend, beginning today on Tuesday.

Many thanks. xo
