An original flower painting inspired by Castor Hanglands National Nature Reserve near where I live and where I have been many times both working and for pleasure.The flowers of the wildflowers of the Reserve are portrayed in this colourful statement piece of art in many multi-colours.
A dramatic hand painted, textured piece for your walls, this painting will brighten your mood on any dull day with its vibrant colours and use of glitter and metallic paints. The picture doesn’t do it justice, the leaves and flowers are made up of layers which glisten and shine as you view the painting from different viewpoints.
No frame needed for this vibrant wall art, as the edges are painted too. Standing at 100cm x 100 x 4cm, with the fixings included.
My inspiration for this painting
My first memory of this reserve was as a young conservationist visiting for the first time on a glorious summer day being thrown the tractor keys and being asked to but the hay meadow. I duly obliged. I still wonder if it was a test to see how I would respond to the challenge!
I love the mix of habitats on this site, woodland, grasslands and ponds, the spring woodland flowers, the summer meadow flowers and the autumn leaves of the trees.
The happy white throat on the sweeing bough
Swayed by the impulse of the gadding wind
That ushers in the showers of april – now
Singeth right joyously and now reclined
Croucheth and clingeth to her moving seat
To keep her hold and till the wind for rest
Pauses she mutters inward melody
That seems her hearts rich thinkings to repeat
And when the branch is still her little breast
Swells out in raptures gushing symphonies
And then against her brown wing softly prest
The wind comes playing an enraptured guest
This way and that she swees – till gusts arise
More boisterous in their play – when off she flies. POET John Clare
This painting has fine glitters and sequins that sparkle in the changing light giving a changing depth to the painting throughout the 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.
My 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.” Charron
