Lewisham Arthouse Open Studios 2016 June 4/5th. This weekend!


Pulmonaria or Lungwort.  This is a plant I have had in my garden for a few years.  It wasn't doing very well, but this year it has blossomed.  Lots and lots of lovely flowers.  I love this family of plants - Boraginaceae. 
In the early 1600s a theory known as the "Doctrine of Signatures" took hold.  Essentially this was that the plants resembling certain parts of the body could be used to heal these parts of the body.  Lungwort was thought to look like the tissue of the lungs. 
Come and see the finished print at Open Studios!
