Allo Allo Aloha

This next watercolour is by Gay Corran and is dated 1982.

This very flower, Allamander Cathartica, appears in her book Hawaii Flowers which is still available at the princely sum of £47.50 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hawaii-Flowers-Gay-Corran/dp/B0007ASFKU/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1376046790&sr=1-1

Here is an illustration from the book, which you must agree, pretty well matches the watercolour above.

It seems Gay grew up in Hawaii but I think she lives in Devon now. Quite a few of her illustrations appear on various web sites, particularly in the US.

We paid £2.99 for this and it should find a loving home with someone who likes flowers or Hawaii or both (apparently it is as common as a weed over there!). It failed to find a new home when we were In Bath but perhaps it will at our next sale in Chipping Norton

Yes folks, Chipping Norton on the 17th August. What will they make of us there?
