Flamenco, oil and enamel on canvas 200 x 100 x 3 cm
Flamenco, a wild floral dance, poppies dressed in fine red silk clap and sway on a whispered summer breeze, telling a story of lost love and remembrance.
Poppies always inspire me. When summer nears its end the joyful red flowers cover the hillside near my home and I am reminded of the beauty in the world. Flamenco is a very large oil painting painted in an expressionuist style with dripped and thrown paint. The flower heads are created with strong palette knifed strokes creating texture and depth in the painting. I have kept the flowers partially deconstructed to symbolism natures wild abandon and the circle of life. Flamenco is ready to hang
