Cats On The Loose

Flowers! Flowers! Flowers!

Some of the most well known works of art are paintings of flowers. You’d likely recognise Oriental Poppies (1928) by Georgia O’Keeffe, Flowers (1970) by Andy Warhol, or Sunflowers by Vincent Van Gogh (1889). Spring is finally here, and what better time to be inspired and paint, make, or arrange flowers yourself?
