About this Painting:
Bring a touch of serenity to your home with 'Simplicity', an elegant wildflower meadow painting crafted in warm golden shades of Achillea and trefoils amidst golden grasses. Let this hazy, tranquil painting capture the last rays of the golden hour, exuding a soothing atmosphere of calm and tranquility.
Finding rest & happiness in this messy world can be a struggle for many of us. We lead complicated lives, juggling so many different things that it all becomes a bit of a frenzy. We seek solutions & answers which just create more complexity.
What has struck me over the years, is that the memories of feeling relaxed & happy are centred around very simple things. Moment of connection, quiet time around Nature, just stopping & being.
Whilst walking around the communal garden here & noticed how the meadow we have allowed to grow wild this year catches the light of the evening sun. I sat down in the grass verge & just watched the gentle wind moving through the grasses & Tansies.
Taking a breath, I noticed that immediately I felt calm & mind could rest. The simplicity of humble wild plants,their fragrance & movement ,which grow absolutely anywhere (if we let them).These days, the tiny details of a patch of grass are enough for me to feel totally at peace.
The pleasure & rewards of allowing Nature to take over, rather than forcing everything into curated beauty, are so satisfying. Just a ten minute wander holds a thousand little vignettes of wonder & just noticing them distracts the mind & so enables relaxation.
I guess what I’m saying is two things… The first is that if you can let a bit of your outside space be given over to Nature it will reward you. The second to just stop & see the simple things which surround you & appreciate their beauty.
Bringing a little of wild Nature into your home, creates the same soothing effects. This little painting carries with it warmth & calm to fill your room with oeace.
