Summer Groove, oil and enamel on canvas, 180 x 120 x 3 cm
I lay here in the grass. Summer sun warms my skin. A haze of floral colour dances in the breeze, moving in time to a Summer Groove.
Inspired by the beauty of a wild summer hillside festooned with wild flowers, I wanted to create a painting which suggests the moment. I have kept the detail of the painting loose to suggest the movement of the flowers in the breeze. Delicate, finely painted flowers lie hidden amongst the cacophony of colour to provide a focal point to the painting. Summer Groove brings back memories of laughing in the sunshine and running through fields of wild flowers. It makes me smile. Summer Groove is ready to hang.
