Blossom Time (sold to Calgary Canada) 2013 by 


This just finished painting has sold to Calgary, Canada. A pastel painting on pastel paper. As I live on a mountain range I like to include these in my paintings.

The idea or structure of the painting took place as I went along. I started with the lorikeet’s placement and then worked the story line around them.

I have no idea what the flowers are as they grew on our footpath where the lorikeets just loved them. Going through my photographs the inspiration of a painting grew as I viewed the flowers and birds.

The mountains and the Australian bushland came to mind for the background as did the river. The river came to life as I started to work on the background.

Please enjoy my art work titled “Blossom Time”

sandra works mainlyin pastels but occassionally she does watercolour, mixed medium and acrylcs.

Travelling now play a bit part of Sandra’s life where she gathers all her reference photography for her art and the joy of photography has started to creep in as an extra extension.

    Your painting is absolutely stunning, Sandra. Even the sky and mountain range (faded as it is) are in harmony with the Lorikeets and their environment. I love how you show a flower bud in the mouths of two of the birds, and another bird whos head is stuck in a flower, presumably sipping its sweet nectar. The new owner of this painting must feel, right now, like the luckiest person in the world. I could look at this forever.

    p.s. I hope you will consider joining solo-exhibition, here, and submitting this and others of your fine art works. I would so love that and be honored for you to do so, Sandra.

  • Hi, many thanks for a wonderful review. The lorikeet just happen to have his head in the flower as I took the photo. The new owner was very happy with the art piece. I worry when a piece is bought unseen except for seeing a photography. Thanking you for the invitation I did look at the site and there is wonderful wonderful art on solo-exhibition so I would be honoured. sandy
