Rubus I

Rubus

Blackberry


2017

10 x 15cm

Watercolour on Fabriano Artistico 300gsm cotton rag


This small painting was prepared for a charity auction held by St Michael's Hospice, Hereford, called Postcards from Life.  The blackberry is a domestic cultivar grown in the artist's garden (though it still has plenty of thorns!).


330 postcard-sized paintings have been contributed by regional artists to the St Michael's auction, run by local auctioneers Brightwells, to raise funds for the hospice.  This year the viewing dates are 10-12 November 2017 at The Bishop's Palace, Hereford.  


Rubus I is number 161 in the catalogue.


The online auction started Monday 30th October, at Brightwells
