Not really known as a painter of flowers, but I'm fascinated with all facets of the natural world and the complex shapes and strong colours made this a challenge I was happy to undertake! If you stare at this one for a while, the flowers melt away and whats left is an intriguing arrangement of negative and positive shapes defined by vivd contrasting colours !
Most of my Georgian Bay paintings have been focused on the natural scene, but for this one, we have the comfortable seats surrounding the fire pit as a key element. I like the way it invites one to imagine themselves, with friends and family, seated in these chairs taking in the spectacular view, or even enjoying the warmth of a good evening around the fire.
The first of a pair of horse in field paintings, (think diptych), combining my desire to paint some intense spring colours , as well as something with a horse in it.
The second painting to come, will be an equally stunning creature standing in the same field, happily chewing away, should make a nice pair!
