Oil on Canvas.

"When I started painting “Midnight”, I attempted a different palette altogether than I was used to. I wanted a quiet, but moody atmosphere. I played around with the different blues and greens, even the creams and whites altered as I continued my journey of the process.
It is hard to be a Canadian and not be influenced by the Group of Seven, with their dynamic lines and colour palettes. I feel this floral painting gravitates towards this (much like my landscapes tend to). Although I am using composition and direction like I normally do I feel it’s with more stylization, more implication in the paint strokes.
Midnight is my interpretation of a midnight rose garden, in the heat of summer.
Deep in the dark of a summer’s night you’ll hear the sounds of crickets chirping in the cooling, misty air. To feel a breeze, gentle against your skin and hear the rustle of leaves as the leaves sway ever so gently. This is the moment when the clouds cast aside and the moonlight streams down, bright like a sun collecting pockets of deep shadows and highlighting the petals. These are the sounds of a quiet summer’s night.
Midnight is dreamy and moody, a nice place to get lost in."
