or let them know: For my end of year exhibition (Adv Dip Tafe ceramics) I am having an exhibition based on the work of Ellis Rowan, an inspirational Australian artist.
I am making some pieces centring around orchids and native Australian plants. However, I would like to ask you to have an input into one piece. It is very easy.
Can you please go to the Queensland Museum link http://www.qm.qld.gov.au/Find+out+about/Behind+the+Scenes/Scientific+illustrations/Insect+illustrators/Ellis+Rowan
There are 3 Ellis Rowan paintings here. Can you please email me or tell which painting is your favourite. Picture one, two or three.
You can tell me why you like it if you want. That would be great – But just a number one, two or three would suffice.
I will make a ceramic piece based on the one that is liked the most
