Florum 2015 - Nopal de Cerro (Opuntia lasiacantha)

I'm slightly preoccupied at the moment - getting my artwork scanned and into frames for tomorrow's submission to Florum!

The exhibition is open to the public at Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve from 12th - 19th September. It includes artwork by a fantastic range of invited artists.

This is one of my artworks - my version of 'Nopal de Cerro (Opuntia lasiacantha)' which is a member of the Prickly Pear family. I am a convert to Canson Bristol Drawing Paper 250gsm!

The exhibition is not strictly botanical although a lot of artists are botanical artists.

Fans of Billy Showell will enjoy seeing her watercolour painting of vegetables

while those who prefer prints will also find a range of artists producing fine art prints
