Polka Dot Dance, oil and enamel on canvas 60 x 60 x 2 cm
Polka Dot Dance, a wild floral soiree, 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. Polka Dot Dance is painted in an expressionist 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. Polka Dot Dance is ready to hang
