Laid side by side.
One sunny afternoon.
In the wilderness,
Wild Flowers of the Forest
Acrylic Media – Diptych
Two Canvas Panels – Unframed
12″ x 36″ each
Wild Flowers of the Forest grew midst dark blue skies and earthy greens. I wanted to paint flowers without form as I like them that way.Starting with modelling paste on two canvas panels put togther side-by-side. Thick coats of bright reds and yellows burst on the canvas with crazy leaves and even crazier skies. In the end, the bright and loud painting was toned down with a wash of burnt umber, which comfortably settled in the crevices of the flowers and leaves.
These bright forms could be roses, pansies or the wild flowers of the forest. It can go as far as you can see; as our mind becomes one with nature… to find itself… in the beauty of life giving life… in the deep dense sights…. as much as our eyes can behold.
And then there are the sights unseen… that lie beyond sight, smell and sound. Can we touch those realms that lie within and beyond? When shall we really see?
The details are left for you to wander around and interpret.
