This piece is part of my “abstractish” series. It is one of the most fun series I have ever painted. I start by literally throwing paint on the canvas (usually with one of my sons), over and over and over again and then paint what comes from it. I love the freedom of painting this way, and I feel like the joy that I experience translates onto the canvas. Comes in a (lovingly made) painted white Tasmanian oak floating frame.
Acrylic on canvas 76 x76 cm (canvas alone) 79cm x 79cm with floating frame
Hope… a fresh start, a new beginning, spring to come…lessons to be learnt, patience to be developed, perseverance, resilience, family, connection, change… This painting is in a series of what I call “Abstractish”. It is my sweet relied from the confines of commissioned work and trying to please. I literally will through paint on a canvas (this one with my youngest son) and then bring out the beauty that comes from it. The joy that I feel doing these paintings is immense and is immense. I have recently added this Lorikeet, from a photo taken of this gorgeous and brazen lorikeet that my eldest son and I discovered when out for a walk. We came within a metre of it, but it was determined to stay and gets in nectar feed.
This painting comes with a floating frame (made by me) in white painted Tasmanian oak.
