Forest Song, oil and enamel on canvas 80 x 80 x 2 cm
Forest Song, a gentle murmur of wind through trees, the crunch of leaves under foot. Hidden among the trees, in solitude.
Inspired by daybreak and the rising sun. I love those mornings when I am awake before the rest of my family. I pull on jeans and a sweater and quickly slip out of the house to walk the dogs in the woods. A chill in the air, a comfortable solitude a Forest Song
I wanted to create an impression of this moment. The viewer is met by a beautiful blend of colour which suggests forest or woodland. Juxtaposed against the strong line are ethereal butterflies, dancing in the dawn light. The sun rays in Forest Song are created with iridescent gold paint. Depending upon where the painting is hung and how much light reflects off it affects the strength of colour in the gold sun rays. Forest Song
