My first painting for 2015. Took six weeks, but I was moving studio’s as well which added to the time it took to paint it.
I found this photo years ago of poppies and fell in love with it, telling myself that someday I would paint it. Well, here it is. First off the rank for 2015.
The painting has been given the name “Glad Song”, which I think is very fitting. I have to admit, I found this painting difficult mostly in regards to the shades of yellow and the background. It is very different to anything I have ever done before. Since going to Toowoomba my painting style has changed dramatically, and I believe I have finally found the style of painting that suits me best. As for the subject? Well, that will vary quite a bit. I’m not the kind of artist that can be squeezed into a small, predictable box. I like to surprise myself and others.
You will find the official image of Glad Song under “Paintings”.
