Golden Days, oil and acrylic on canvas, 200 x 120 x 2 cm on two canvas panels each measuring 100 x 120 x 2 cm (Diptych)
Golden Days, a summer blue sky, the air is warm like a soft breath. The wheat sways, a ripple of gold and a murmur of forgotten days. Red poppies speak of lost love.
In Golden Days I wanted to create a simple painting expressing open space. A vast expanse of sky and field. Memories of my youth, running in the fields, hiding from a childhood lover. Laughing under a summer sun and a remembered warmth of summers past. I have painted Golden Days in an expressionist style using dynamic application of paint to create movement and texture, to represent the dancing sky and grass. The painting is essentially abstract colour using the red poppies as a focal point to bring the viewer into the wheat field. Flecks of gold paint shine iridescent like flashes of golden sunshine. Golden Days is ready to hang
