Strawberry Sundae, wildflower delight, Pink flowers topped with a whipped cream curl of pale yellow petals. A sweet delight.
Inspired by Hydrangeas and specifically the Strawberry Sundae variety which blooms more conical than round, Strawberry Sundae is a large abstract impression of the Hydrangea flower. An expressionist background suggests an ever changing autumn sky while the delicate blue violet daisies complement the yellow tones in the drip work. Ethereal butterflies hover above the Hydrangea blooms bringing a focus and clarity to the abstract floral artwork. Ghostly dripped roses bring depth to the background whilst gold flashes of paint reflect light and bring the wild garden to life. Strawberry Sundae represents my passion for flowers and colour and the beauty of a wild neglected garden. Strawberry Sundae.
