Last night at the Saint Louis Art Museum Book Club, I heard Molly Peacock discuss her book, The Paper Garden. The book explores Mary Delany's and Molly Peacock's life. Marietta sat next to me. In discussing the book, Marietta said she hadn't finished it yet, but she wished Molly Peacock would just 'butt out.' Doug Holland of the Missouri Botanical Garden provided interesting background and insight inter Mary Delany's botanical collages.
Inspired by Mary Delany I did a collage in today.
