From a small drawing made in St James Park London I developed a large painting and an embroidery and then digitised them both to create two similar designs for cushions and canvases.

St James Park has a whole team of gardeners with the most delightful bedding  plants creatively arranged. Probably one of the most visited of the Royal Parks it also has a lake and a wide range of water birds including pelicans and black swans  !
