The Lavender Fields, oil and enamel on canvas, 200 x 120 x 2 cm on two canvas frames each measuring 100 x 120 x 2 cm (Diptych).
The Lavender Fields, a sweet perfume. I breathe deep, relax. Inspired by the abundance of wild lavender on the hillsides, The Lavender Fields captures an early morning glow of a bruised purple landscapes. A soft lilac haze of flowers and twisted tendrils and crooked stalks. The sky is painted in deep greys and blues with 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 petals add a textured quality to the artwork and the delicate morning star flowers add a sharp contrast to the lilac glow. Dripped gold paint sits in the undergrowth in the painting and catches light bringing depth to the painting. The Lavender Fields is ready to hang.
