ORANGE ART TRAIL – LORETTA BLAKE
When I’m not painting in my garden studio, I’m usually do gardening. My work is currently inspired by the beautiful landscape of our region. Its distinct seasons provide endless and wonderful colour palettes to explore.
My studio on the outskirts of Orange is situated on the slopes of Mt Canobolas, where the rich volcanic soil has provided the ideal conditions for my abundant garden. Flowers have always been a favourite subject and I find fresh flowers a the necessity to inform my still lives.
I continue to reference my traditional foundations in my practice, and also enjoy the freedom of working in both a figurative and abstract manner. My recent work conveys the essence of landscape with references to the sky and garden. I feel my reverence for the natural world is expressed in my paintings.
