Natures exuberance…..natures inspiration.

Later this year I am heading back to Timeless Textiles, Newcastle, to again stage a solo exhibition which I have titled “Natures Exuberance”.  I have been blessed with  moving into a home last year that has an amazing garden and I have enjoyed watching and photographing as the seasons unfold. Over what seems like months I have watched these lilies grow and yesterday they began to open.

Their colour is exquisite and they epitomise exuberance and luxuriance to me.

 

There are a few meanings of the word ‘exuberance’ that appeal to me and because it is my exhibition and I can choose to suit – here are a few:

“the quality of growing profusely; luxuriance”(I love that word also!)

“effusively and almost uninhibitedly enthusiastic, lavishly abundant”

“abounding in vitality, extremely joyful and vigorous”

I also checked out the meaning of “luxuriance” :

“Luxuriant growth or productiveness; rich abundance; lushness”

“Abundantly and often extravagantly rich and varied”.

Definitely they are effusively and almost uninhibitedly enthusiastic!

While writing this I am reminded of a thread painting I did many years ago and while the thread painting has sold I still have the original cartoon painting.  Meanwhile these stunning pink lily flowers are food for my creative soul and I know the possibilities are germinating as I write!
