Get ready for my paintings to explore some fun and bold colours over the coming months as I embrace spring, summer and sunshine.
To be honest, I think living in Queensland is rubbing off on me. I grew up in Melbourne where the uniform de jour is black on black. But with sunny days on repeat and living by my own little patch of paradise I can’t help but be influenced by the colours around me and its spilling into my palate and artwork.
And with the sense of spring in the air, it makes sense for that colour to blossom in a new series of floral pieces. I’ve been asking my followers on Facebook and Instagram about their favourite blooms and I’m using their suggestions to influence my paintings.
This is the first few paintings of a new series around the Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia).
The paintings are available through my Etsy store and Art Lovers Australia.
