"Summer Joy," 16" x 16"
Oil on Canvas.
“There is a feeling of anticipation nearing the end of May, as the days warm up and the plants are coming alive that summer is coming. Blue skies, wispy clouds, warm breezes, and the sun kissing all the new blooms. This is one of my favourite times of the year and the best symbol at this time of year is the peony. Peonies only bloom for a short time at the end of May and what a show they put on. This still life showcases that.
The leaves help portray the warm winds with all their movement and redirection throughout the still life. Using peonies in various stages of bloom also creates thoughts of process/movement. The blue-grey background represents the rain in May, the blue skies for the summer to come and I added yellow for the sun that helped create the blooms.
This is a joyful artwork. I really enjoyed creating something so positive and uplifting. “
