    When I was young (in case you spring chickens are wondering, yes it was the middle of the last century) on Mother’s Day we were expected to help mum in all that she did around the home and we also biked out (no car in those days) with my father to the local woods to collect daffodils and snowdrops for a posy.

    So Marion suggested I paint my 7 favourite silver jugs and call it ‘The magnificent 7’. What one doesn’t realise when starting is that every jug has jugs reflected in it and within those reflections is reflected the same jug one is painting. Talk about confusing, at the end of every day my head was spinning and after 23.5 long consecutive days I finished it.

    This lovely silver bowl is a new purchase, made by Walker and Hall, I don’t know if it’s a large bon-bon dish or a small fruit dish. The decanter is a late Georgian one, beautifully blown with a perfect pontil mark on the base where the craftsman cut the finished article from the blowing rod.

    Another genus of flowering plants I have always loved are the various clematis. This one is so vigorous throwing up multiple stems every year and clinging to everything within its grasp. Just outside the studio door it just begged to be painted.

    It’s always rather daunting starting to paint a living, moving subject. It was such a tall stem I had to cut it from the pot and put it in water…..orchids don’t seem to like that. After two days it started to protest and I had to work every hour of the day to complete it.

    Another garden favourite are the Lily of the Valley. But I must admit to having to spray half of them with weed killer last year lest they take over. They are a great subject, they keep still while I paint them.

    When I don’t know what to paint next I turn to my little red book. Every time we have an idea or simply a title I write it down, I look through the book and suddenly the title becomes an idea. I began with the chocolates and then I arranged everything around them until I had a complete composition.
