Ruaidhri Bashford, Marantha / Prayer palnt
Ruaidhri Bashford is Wicklow artist, horticulturist and illustrator. Ruaidhri has taught landscape design and worked as an illustrator for some of Ireland's top garden designers. He has also designed and created an award-winning garden in Bloom, and worked for several years for Howbert & Mays. This lively painting of a Marantha - known as the 'Prayer Plant' - shows the plant in its complex beauty. The leaves fold up at night as if two hands were coming together in prayer. It is for those who love both plants and art, or who wants all the character and beauty of a house plant but maybe don't want the effort of looking after one! Like most paintings on this website, you can see it in our Clare Street premises.
Oill on canvas, 30 x 50cm (40 x 60 inc frame).
