Bellissimo, acrylic and oil on canvas, 200 x 120 x 2 cm on two canvas panels each measuring 100 x 120 x 2 cm
Sun rays break the horizon and Violet blue flowers turn their faces towards the warmth. Reborn in this new dawn, wild things in the garden reach up to greet the morning. Spindly branches stretch their arms, wild irises open their hearts and scarlet red poppies unfurl their leaves, rejoicing in the daybreak.
There is something special about being up and outside at the break of dawn. It feels like a secret place that few people get to see. The beautiful purple haze as night recedes and then the golden crest of light which heralds a new day. I breathe in deep, the air is fresh and damp, the day full of hope. All around me feels like an enchanted garden… It is bewitchingly beautiful here amongst these wildflowers. This is my inspiration for Bellissimo. The chaotic and the beautiful.
