Ready to Hang
Capturing the gestures of humans or natural elements is a constant fascination and challenge in my work, and throughout all my painting, color is an evocative emotional component.
This graceful image of a flowering vine is simultaneously active and calming.
The atmospheric background is flickering mix of light green and blue and peach, and the painting is continued on the edges so can be hung without a frame.
