{ botanica 2013 }

Grevillea 'Loopy Lou' - watercolour on paper - by Pip Boydell 

You may remember a month or two ago I posted here about a new botanical piece that I had begun? Well, I'm pleased to let you know that it has been selected to exhibit at Botanica - one of Australia's most preeminent botanical art exhibitions, curated and hosted by the Royal Botanical Gardens of Sydney each year.

With all the exhibited artist's work appearing by invitation only, Botanica is held in high acclaim in Australia and internationally so I feel extremely humbled to have been asked to submit, let alone accepted and hung as part of this prestigious collection!

I still can't quite believe I made it through but in doing so I am really looking forward to heading down to Sydney for the opening which is tomorrow evening; to meet the other artists and of course see all the amazing work that I know will be just awe-inspiring (for me, anyway!).

For anyone that is in Sydney I highly encourage you to head along. Here are the details:

When: Saturday 13 April - Sunday 28 April 2013, 10 am-4 pm daily
Where: Joseph Maiden Theatre & Moore Room, Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney
Price: Free Entry. All works for sale
Enquiries: 9231 8182

All works are for sale (including my grevillea!), by enquiry through the Foundation & Friends at the Botanical Gardens at the phone number above (or you can contact me directly by email

So I'll wish you all a happy weekend early now - and I will check back in with some pics next week!
