This is another meadow painting created using the same process described in the last post. This was my first work in the Garden Series and it is actually my favourite of the ten completed works to date. I particularly like the way the imagery moves from highly realistic to very abstract. There are all kinds of surprises within it when you take a closer look. I really wanted to take a common scene that many people just pass by without a second look, and create something that reveals the energy and life tucked away in the tall grass evident to those who take a closer look. Both this painting and the one from the previous post are the same meadow.
While the sky is overcast, there is a defiant energy and brightness in the flowers and grasses that is always there even in the rain. Do you have a favourite between the two? I'd love to hear from you.
