Spring flowers

It is spring here in this part of the world! And after a long winter of perpetual greyness, it is an important, if not life saving season for us 🌞. This year, it is strange because we are all limited in our movements - but every minute spent outside is guaranteed to lift you up because of the wonderful flowers everywhere. Which brings me to the topic of this week: the wonderful flowers painted by Thomas Dixon.

I never knew about Thomas Dixon until I was lucky enough to be able to purchase a large collection of Coalport plates, which I have slowly been working my way through in the last year or so. Again and again I came across a style that became familiar, and that I started to be able to document here and there; and then I became able to identify other items based on that. It is the style of hand painted flowers by Thomas Dixon.
