Additional Information

Running Wild is a medium, landscape format, expressive botanical artwork in acrylic on deep sided artist quality, stretched cotton duck.  This painting is a riotous overflow of salmon roses with cream highlights spilling out onto a heavily textured background. The work appears wild, free and unkempt with the flowers delivering a sense of being out of control. This work is unframed but ready to hang. The canvas has raw clean sides.

The inspiration for this painting came from my garden where I have been able to grow the most marvellous plants. I wanted to create something bright and happy that can bring joy to viewers. We all need a bit of joy and sunshine in our lives, particularly when times are grim, as they are now with COVID-19.

The painting is expressive and textured completed in an abstract, contemporary style.  Paint was applied with large brushes and even my fingers.  I used broad, textured strokes for the flowers. I often use my fingers when painting as it allows me to get even closer to my paintings, intimately feeling the texture and lusciousness of the paint. The medium is mixed media as I have incorporated collage into the work, giving both texture and mystery. While paint colours include pastel shades the tonal work gives an overall effect of brightness and power. Colours include blues, pinks, salmon, cream, pale yellow, turquoise, pale olive green, pale blue, white, Prussian blue, magenta. The result is a contemporary approach to an impressionistic floral work.

I love the beauty of floral works and the power they have to bring joy to the viewer. Floral subjects also demand that the artist explore colour and texture combinations. I have especially sought to capture the beauty of these flowers in a way that is abstracted, free and expressive.
