Morning Star, oil and enamel on canvas, 150 x 150 x 3 cm
Morning Star, deep purple blooms, twisted climbing tendrils and rich vibrant flowers. Yellow Blossom, transient beauty, fleeting and startling.
In the shade of the Cassia tree I look at the beauty around me, the tangled branches and abundance of colour, the perfection and the chaos.
My inspiration for this stunning painting is a wonderful arboretum near my home where you can sit under the shade of a tree on the banks of a lake and let hours slip by. In spring time the blossoms on the trees are breath taking. The painting uses a contrast of expressionist dripped paint and palette knifed flowers with finely painted branches and textured blossoms to create a stunning artwork which places the viewer in the shade of a Cassia tree. Morning Star is ready to hang.
