Summer Storms and Wildflowers, oil on canvas, 120 x 120 x 4 cm
Storm clouds gather on a hot summer day. The sun shines bright on golden wheat fields which ripple under a dancing breeze. I sit on the fence and look toward the horizon. Wildflowers bloom in the hedgerows and I feel a fresh breeze blow. I will dream tonight of Summer Storms and Wildflowers.
Painted in rich and vibrant oil paint, Summer Storms and Wildflowers draws on a beauty reminiscent of the paintings of Gustav Klimt using iridescent gold oil paint in the golden wheat fields and highlighting the storm clouds and wildflowers. Bold colour choice and deep contrasting tones bring the countryside alive. The painting evokes memories of long hot summers and childhood memories of listening to thunder. Summer Storms and Wildflowers is ready to hang.
