I love it when we are driving through the countryside and we come across a gorgeous field of wildflowers. The sudden burst of color thrills your senses! I wanted to capture the rhythm, color, and density of this brilliant carpet of red. Making sure not to over blend my thick strokes so that you could see the marks and feel the energy found in nature. Repeating patterns and waves of color create a harmony within the painting, while rendering the blooms and their surroundings abstractly plays with taking a traditional subject matter and showing it in a contemporary way.
I’m excited to have been invited to exhibit at Studio Seven Arts in Pleasanton, CA. If you’d like to see or find out more details about Nature’s Brushstrokes V, please check them out:
