Lupin from the Latin Lupine meaning ‘wolf like’. Early peoples thought that Lupins only grew in barren areas where there were few other plants. They believed Lupins must have taken all goodness from the soil – like a wolf robbing the fold. Appropriate then that my new painting was released on the day of a full moon. Changing my style to the more botanical look with the plain white background is a development to a new and growing clientele.
