Inna Gadda da Vida

Finally, after trawling the archives, I get to put up a new painting. Just completed, it’s a painting of the Swiss-Italian gardens at Lavandula Lavender Farm near Daylesford. Go there and have the share plate. This is from a sketch of their fabulously ornamental vegetable plots: onions and nasturtiums and, hmmm, nigella maybe? Not entirely sure. For a blue-skinned boy from Scotland, to live in a place where there are wineries, olive groves and lavender farms is close to paradise. Hence the title of the post.

I couldn’t bring myself to call the painting Inna Gadda Da Vida because, let’s face it, who remembers Iron Butterfly?
