Lavender Love, Oil and enamel on canvas, 160 x 100 x 2 cm on two panels each measuring 80 x 100 x 2 cm
Lavender Love, a summer evening, the sun light in my eyes. We climb the hill, hand in hand and fall laughing in the tangled grass and lavender flowers. I lay here with you. My memories are warm and hazy. I remember laughing, I remember your arms around me. The sweet perfume, the bed of grass and knotted vines, a warm glow of lilac and gold covering the ground and an ever changing blue sky casting shadows on a hillside of wildflowers. Created in an expressionist style Lavender Love has gold flashes of paint running through the drip to suggest sunlight refracting through the wildflowers. Red polka dot wild roses dance in the Lavender and delicate butterflies hover above the wildflowers. The painting is full of texture from the thickly applied oil paint which creates the flowers. Strong areas of dripped and splashed paint create the chaos of undergrowth around the flowers. Created on two panels each measuring 80 x 100 x 2 cm. Lavender Love is ready to hang.
