Lovely use of lilac.
Still Life with Flowers and a Bottle (1968) Mary Fedden. Also a reminder to plant snakeshead fritillaries very soon.
Mauve Still Life (1968) Mary Fedden.
Surely not a coincidence that both are painted in the same year? MF must have either been having a lilac period (cf Picasso and blue) or had bought a large quantity of this colour. (It's a long time since I heard anyone use the word 'mauve' which seems such a quaint word now - I recall wearing 'mauve' bell-bottoms a long time ago.)
Amazingly, these are our paintings.
