Sweet Dreams, oil and enamel on canvas 130 x 80 x 3 cm
Sweet Dreams, Lavender scent. Breathe deep, relax. Inspired by the abundance of wild lavender on the hillsides, Sweet Dreams is my depiction of lavender fields. A soft purple haze and twisted tendrils of crooked stalks. The sky is painted in off white tones and glimmers of gold. Expressionist dripped paint suggests nature and its move toward chaos whilst the delicate lavender flowers bring focus and clarity to the artwork. The purple flowers add a textured quality to the artwork and the bright orange poppies add a sharp contrast to the lilac glow. Dripped gold paint sits in the undergrowth in the painting and dark black leaves create shadow and definition. Sweet Dreams is ready to hang.
