Vegetables, trowels and earth

Leek and trowel  -  32 x 25cm

The RI has a theme at its annual exhibition this year (Mall galleries, London, 2 – 19 April) which members can use if they want.  ‘Gardens and gardening’ lends itself to my love of old tools, rust, dirt and general ordinariness. Kind friends have donated winter vegetables and well-loved tools to sit alongside ours.  Today I hope to be starting on a tower of root vegetables – a vertical ‘row’ will be a welcome break from horizontal ones.
