There are so many events to co-incide with Chelsea Flower Show. One of our favourite things to do is to wander around Sloane Street, the Kings Road and along Pimlico Road admiring Chelsea in Bloom – the shops that decorate their window displays in flowers. This year, make a note to pop into Sybil Colefax & John Fowler. For the week of the Flower Show fine artist, Jacqueline Rufus Isaacs will be exhibiting a small series of her paintings that have an emphasis on colour and flowers. Here Jacquie shares some of the works she will be exhibiting:
The Wychwood – ‘near where I live in the country. I very often walk through it with my dogs and I think that it has a very spiritual and secret feel about it which I have tried to capture in acrylic.’
Lily the Pink – ‘lilies are one of my favourite flowers. In the summer I have masses of pots of them on the terrace. This is one example, finished oil on board.’
Remembrance – ‘most Wednesdays I paint at the Sketch Club, Chelsea, which is close to the Royal Hospital. This was painted in November when poppies were being sold by the Pensioners in their scarlet tunics. Oil on board.’
The works range from £450 to £900.
