One A Day 20:365 Composition with banksia cones and edge of road.

20:365 Composition with banksia cones and edge of road. Banksias are subtle, sophisticated, strong. My favourite combination.

These banksias are subtle and strong and sculptural, camouflaged against the side of the road after a downpour on my morning walk.

And then in the afternoon came along a second version. A composition with deconstructed  pine cone flakes.

This is what happens sometimes – You get an even better #oneaday than the one posted earlier. I was in Lawson at Diana’s house picking up some of my artwork and materials that she had stored for me for sometime. I noticed the lovely and unusual pine tree in her garden with bits of pine cone scattered everywhere – from the cockatoos probably looking for the seeds.

The pine cone shapes looked a bit like a Victorian wallpaper motif, a fleur de lys almost, so I made a pattern and left it behind to say I’d dropped in.
