About this painting: Uberty, an abundance of fertile growth at the end of Summer. Copious grasses, flowers & seed heads creating fruitfulness for the following year, whilst providing a glorious spectacle of plants in the golden sunlight.
This big loose canvas was created in multiple layers over the course of weeks. Each layer was in a way a painting in itself if I had chosen to stop at that point, much like a garden with depth of growth & variety.
During a week of freezing rain & howling winds making the outdoors grey & unfriendly, I lost myself in memories of the places I love most. The meditative process behind the creation of this painting took my mind languid days of sunshine, the fragrance of the meadow warm on the breeze. As the bright colours of high summer fade to gold, umbers & browns in the layered seed heads of Phlomis. while Gaura spread their spinly fronds amongst the grasses with delicate points of white & pink tiny blooms.
Winter can be hard, lockdown even more so & as the weeks roll on without the ability to roam freely through gardens & countryside bringing the freedom of the outdoors in becomes more vital. the free wildness of these meadow gardens remind me that nurturing myself, being grateful for what I have & chering the good things about this time, sows the seeds of fruitfulness & abundance for the future. if I can find joy at the hardest of times then the cherished freedoms we are missing will be even more amazing appreciated when we reclaim them
Uberty is a big statement piece, which brings warmth, happiness & a feeling of losing oneself in its wild growth to a room.
