It has indeed been quite some time since last I wrote.
So here then a preview of some latest work in progress, a new botanical piece ‘Irises’ inspired by my recent walks past some beautiful examples of this wonderful flower. For more images head on over to:

No posts for quite some time now, this is most remiss of me.
I’ve been engrossed working on new artworks that will form part of a new series and along with this working on the redesign & relaunch of my website. More about this soon!
"On inspiration there is but one, Nature.
For Nature knows no bounds. For her there is no colour too vivid, no form too bold.
Yes, it is to her I yield.
From her cool freshly stretched canvases of fallen snow, to the exquisite fiery strokes of her sunsets,
or the deep impasto of a raging sea, there is none greater.
Art and Artist, unequalled is she.
My Mother, my Master, my teacher, my life.
And so it is I say, that to Nature I bow,
long and mighty may she reign !”
~ L. J. Le Rolland

Solanum dulcamara - Woody Nightshade or Bittersweet
Veiled amongst shadowy undergrowth and hedgerows can be found the delicate Woody Nightshade or Bittersweet, a femme fatale of flora.
Flowering from June through to September with an exquisite blaze of vibrant purple flowers and enticing, voluptuous scarlet berries, it is easily to fall under the spell of the Bittersweet.
Alas, Bittersweet by name, bittersweet by nature. Its allure and beauty aside, La Belle Fleur is pernicious - from its very root to berry it is entirely poisonous.
