Dust Merchant - Collection 007
Designed exclusively for The Dust Merchant, a gift and homewares store based in the Wheatbelt town of Kellerberrin.
Inspired by scenes from the Wheatbelt; Canola in bloom, fields of everlastings in yellow, pink and blue hues, delicate gum blossom and dainty springtime orchids.
The Dust Merchant collection was designed to celebrate not only the characteristic aspects of the Wheatbelt (think expansive fields of yellow Canola and paper daisies growing on the roadside), but also to highlight the little known aspects of the Wheatbelt's biodiversity.
Granite Sun Orchid – An endemic orchid species, Thelymitra petrophila, or Granite Sun Orchid, is found through the drier inland portions of WA from Kalbarri to the Nullabor. It flowers from September to October and is usually found near granite outcrops. The beautiful purple-blue of this orchid inspired me, and the contrasting vibrant yellow textured background picks up on the yellow of the Canola flowers.
Oil and mixed media on canvas. 300 x 300mm.
