Aria, oil on canvas, 120 x 70 x 3 cm
Aria, a summer song on a gentle breeze. Wildflowers dance to a floral melody. Summer wildflowers represent the beauty of nature and the perfection of creation. To thrive in the harshest conditions, to survive and flourish with joy and wild abandon, wildflowers inspire me. I want to be as strong and defiant as those sweet summer blooms. A perfect song of nature, Aria.
Bold strokes of colour are arranged to represent a meadow full of summer wildflowers. The brush strokes are strong and linear with palette knife detail to represent petals. Strong accents of red represent poppies in the undergrowth and deep violet blue hues suggest iris’s. I hope in Aria people will remember to stop and see the beauty of the world around them. Aria is ready to hang.
