Florals by Sophie

Burbage Florist in Leicestershire, Petite Fleur. I have been painting some lavender and buttercups in the garden of my art studio in Burbage, Leicestershire. These two paintings are now in our local village florist shop, Petite Fleur. They are unframed but the shop does sell frames.

While painting these the smell of lavender was making me sleepy, I hope no bee’s sting me, perhaps a walk around the village again today will wake me up a bit ready to paint some more.

Us artists sometimes get so busy with our own online shops and art galleries that we forget to support local shops. We have such a pretty village, and this shop is beautiful. It makes my day to pop in and see the lovely gifts and flowers they sell.

If you live in Leicestershire pop into the florist opposite the library to purchase these artworks. They will only be in the window for a few weeks because the direct sunlight from a shop window on an unframed watercolour paining might lighten them very slightly. Petite Fleur has beautiful unique, one off, items as well as the flowers. Thanks, Artist Sophie ;-)
