Ready to Hang
This painting is part of my 'Glass Reflections' range where glass objects and often flowers are placed on a mirrored surface to allow light and colour to be picked up throughout the canvas.
Peonies are really beautiful flowers and have such a strong yet such a soft romantic appeal which I wanted to capture through using soft hues throughout the painting. I have a beautiful pink bell jar/demi jar that complements the floral tones of the peonies perfectly and it is the first time I have used coloured glass in this range.
The canvas is painted around the sides and therefore is ready to hang.
I am a midlands based Artist and I feel very lucky to be inspired by the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. Some of its influences can be seen in my work, particularly paintings that focus on reflections in lakes and water. Having drawn and painted all my life I studied Art and Design at Derby university. At that time I had a real passion for drawing and painting animals and took on many commissions painting people's pets. I never lost my drive to paint and draw but not knowing anyone that had made a full time career as an Artist I decided to follow an academic route and became a lecturer teaching at colleges and universities. I always knew that I was going to come back to Art at some point in my life and in 2012 I decided to take the plunge and I am now a full time Artist selling throughout the world.
