My inspiration for this painting (written as I travelled around Iceland in August 2018)
Iceland is a land of adventure, mystery, geology along with a sense of adventure and experiences to connect you to the nature and the outstanding landscapes that appear continuously as you travel. Wherever I travel I am drawn to the flowers of the region, both those I recognise and those that are new to me. In the work that is created the flowers give you a feel of the sense of place and the colours of the season of the year. I hope that you will feel a sense of exploration and a sense of anticipation in my work inspired by the places that I experience. I hope that you can experience them too and be inspired to travel to the places that draw you to them.
Rays of delicate light shimmer and dance on the horizon
As glints of magic flicker from the land
Grey desolate rocks as far as the eye can see
Covered with a blanket of green mossy fronds
Water shoots abruptly to the sky with
Gurgling and bubbling in turquoise pools beneath
The colours accentuated under a bright blue sky
Holding the dramatic landscape in its unpredictable charms
Cascades of water thunder down across rock
Steam whitens the sky
Crystal clear water from glaciers afar
Tumbles from dizzying heights to a calm sea
The delicate flowers and dainty grasses
Dance across Meadows touched by the wind
The blonde Icelandic ponies wander free
Through meadows of cotton grass featherlight and white
Fluffy low clouds shroud the heavy mountain tops whilst
Gigantic roaring waterfalls fall to the shaken earth
Snowtopped mountains with icy glaciers beneath
Fjords Flow to sea under the pyramidal mountains
Peaks coated with endless white clouds
The lake in the rain drenched stormy clouds
Travelling on hairpin bends down to the coast
Small multi coloured houses sit by the sea
The huge ferry dominates the harbour
Bringing and taking the holiday people away
Hot pots of thick mud bubble and hiss
The egg like sulphur hits you hard with the smell
Volcanic craters high and blue with gem like crusted rims
Clouds of hot steam rise violently from the earth
Puffins fling themselves from cliffs reaching to heaven
Their wings wildly flapping to save them from disaster
Still waters of the lakes reflect the beauty of the skies as
Tufts of delicate purple heather adorn the gentle green meadows
Rivers wind their way through landscapes green and grey
The icy blue waters of godafoss thunder down the gorge
Leaving the Viking pagan gods in the past
Azure Wide fjords with fingers of land
Wild Rearing Icelandic ponies full of charm
Plateaus of mountains with green valleys between
Dormant volcanic craters stand over endless black volcanic sand
With seals hauled out all snoozing and calm
Beautiful Peace descends on this land
Vast seas as far as the eye can see
Playing seals bob and dive
Eider ducks with feathers cosying their chicks
The gravel tracks of death with potholes and mud
Sheep grazing and lazying about
And everywhere gigantic mountain tops tower above
Undulating Meadows with majestic Viking ponies
Beneath sugar dusted summits and soaring gulls
Water gushes and crashes through rock filled gorges
the gentle steamy waters of the blue lagoon
Cocooned by The craggy dark grey of the lava field
Leaving a corner of my heart in this jewel of an island so far far away.
Unfinished business, Knowing I will return some day……
“a huge waste of black sand all powdered over with tufts of sea-pink and bladder-campion at regular intervals, like a Persian carpet”. William Morris
Looking at this painting you will be captivated by the bright vivid colours that will delight your eyes and your heart. You can feel the energy and the heart-centred love with which this painting has been created. It will stir your emotions and inspire you. You will experience the beauty and shimmer of the metallics and glitters that sparkle and shine to brighten your day.
I am about creating connections. Between people and the natural world. Between the mind, body and spirit. Between people, their stories and their message to the world. Between emotions, intuition and energies that are present in our lives.
My art is about allowing the creation and the magic to unfold naturally, in the moment and in an intuitive way that evolves visually before me through both paintings and installations and embracing the unknown by channelling the inspiration from the experiences and knowledge of the world around me. I rarely plan any of my work as I trust myself on an emotional and creative level to create the work that I feel deep within my heart.
My work comes from the heart. It comes from my spirit and emotions. I connect with our inner child to create art that is vibrant and colourful with deep meaning. My art is an exploration of our spiritual selves. It is taking my imagination and putting the intangible beauty into an earthly form for you to deeply connect with on a spiritual and a happiness level.
Most of my work is inspired by nature and the outdoor world both of which are connected by the stories and messages that each can convey through art.
Art is a constant journey of discovery, leading to new places and new ideas. There will never be enough time to create all that I want and need to show and share with the world.
“Each artist follows their own spiritual path. You have to believe that it’s your dream and your life and you have permission to be who you want to be. As an artist you must work and create to let your ideas or energies become reality. You have to make space for the ideas and inspiration to flow to create and develop new work. No one can tell you what to do. You act on your intuition and forge your own path. You need to be tenacious, to work hard, to follow your own true path. But this is nothing if I cannot share with you and give a little more happiness to the world in which we all live.” Charron
