Cherish. Oil, acrylic and enamel on canvas, 120 x 60 x 2 cm
Cherish a moment, Cherish a memory, Cherish the beauty of the world. I hold the thought of you close to my heart, Cherished.
Inspired by the beauty of a wild summer hillside festooned with wild flowers, I wanted to create a painting which suggests a cherished moment. I have kept the detail of the painting loose to suggest the movement of the flowers in the breeze. Delicate, finely painted flowers lie hidden amongst the cacophony of colour to provide a focal point to the painting. Cherish brings back memories of laughing in the sunshine and running through fields of wild flowers. It makes me smile. Cherish is ready to hang.
