This painting is inspired by my time at Passing Clouds Winery in Musk. We used the piece for our "Daylesford Lazy Lunch" canister (organic green with jasmine) as it symbolises the long, boozy foodie sessions that Daylesford is famous for and that I love.
This is our Daylesford Last Drinks canister. I live just a couple of doors down from the beautiful Convent Gallery and we often have tipsy bridesmaids stumbling down the road from a wedding up there. I love the idea of sneaking off for a little quiet time and a drink in the garden during the reception.
"The Great Escape" (Bridesmaid sneaking off for a wine and some breathing space during the wedding reception - Convent Gallery)
This is the artwork we used for one of our original teas (and one of our favourites) called "Bitch is Back". I love her intensity but we needed to cease the tea canister as people didn't really understand what "Bitch is Back" meant - we created her over a few wines and we thought we were hilarious! The tea is now called Sweet Tooth instead and I must says she sells a lot better! (Black tea with vanilla and caramel pieces)
This painting is called "Mostly I Prefer the Company of Books". It is probably my second most important painting as signifies a big step in my painting style and a leap into detail and surrounds where I used to just have blank canvas backgrounds. I have kept this piece also. The tea we created to match was the "Daylesford Grey Afternoon" (Earl Grey)
