Tucked behind the shed, I found a raggedy little wintersweet bush. I couldn't believe my luck, as not much is growing around here right now. I snipped off a branch and brought it inside. It has a deeply comforting sweet/citrus scent.
The flowers inspired a bit of watercolour work, and that in turn led to some stamp-carving from rubber. And so I have this simple little wintersweet flower print, made with yellow textile ink on natural linen. It's very July-in-NZ, don't you think?
I'm really loving pinterest right now- when the working (studying) hours and long and grey, ten minutes playing on my pinboards at night is the best medicine, I think. My boards are here- does anything take your fancy?
