Diana Vincent – Progress – The Flowering Plum

The Flowering Plum

In my front yard I have a flowering plum tree. I love to follow the progress of this tree as it moves from grey bud to brilliant white blossom, and then green leaf. Finally it turns into all it’s glorious autumn colours. It lays barren all over winter and then the whole progress starts again.

Hand dyed cotton background printed with Lumiere paints. Dyed cotton scrim. Commercial silks and crystal organza. Flaked metal leaf.


  1. Sometimes we forget that progress can be cyclical. Beautifully interpreted, Diana!

    Just beautiful Diana. The flowers are just so delicate.

  3. Diana, this is delightful, I have the imitation cherry trees and just love the blossom. Well done.

  4. What a beautiful delicate depiction. I love your colours
