As previously posted here in the BAGSC Blog, Estelle DeRidder held an exhibition of twelve more paintings of California Native species, as an extension of her ‘Flashcard Project’, started through a grant from the ASBA to illustrate the plants of the Madrona Marsh in Torrance, California.

The exhibit was open to the public until December 3, 2015.

Estelle also conducted an ornament-making session at Madrona Marsh in December, with botanical art and pollinators as the theme. There were 45 participants, who industriously produced 120 ornaments in three hours! Birds and creepy-crawlies were the pollinator species of choice this time around.

Estelle will teach a Spring ornament-making workshop too. Spring will include flowers, trees and shrubs, butterflies and bees, and probably some birds as well (they’re popular). Interested? Email Estelle.
