On the home stretch

Here is a little snippet of a new design I have been working on - a sweet little farmyard scene for girls.

Busy on the Farm

And busy painting farms! It's a busy time of year here at Hiccups.

Paper Daisies

I spotted these spectacular Australian native daisies in the Royal Melbourne Botanical Gardens on the weekend, after a visit to the biennial Art of Botanical Illustration exhibition. The exhibition of around 150 botanical paintings and drawings is on display until the 21st of November 2010, at Domain House, Dallas Brooks Drive, South Yarra. 
A fellow (and very talented) designer at Linen House, Jacqui Baxter, has two paintings hanging in the exhibition. Hopefully she will inspire me to complete a painting in time for the next exhibition in two years! I think these paper daisies bracteantha bracteata (thanks google) would be quite a nice subject matter....

A marvellous menagerie

What fun (and patience!) the stylists at Anthropologie must have when creating the wonderful images found inside their always inspiring brochures? 
These gorgeous creatures and equally gorgeous products (I love that mint green 'Anais' bag) can be found starring in the Anthropologie November 2010 catalogue.
