Titled ‘Dark Corners’ the blue cornflower is an incredibly tough flower that stands up to all elements nature throws at it and displays its beautiful shades of blue flowers. I have memories of growing swathes of them while living near Manchester and drying them hanging upside down. I know a number of artists (like me) are strongly affected by blues – both the colour and the emotion. This year has affected all of us in so many ways.
