📍Crafted in Forest Row, East Sussex
Transcendent Springtime is an exuberant semi-abstract painting of a springtime landscape with a brown hare in a wildflower meadow. It is 48x36 inches. The painting shows an ethereal scene whereby lots of particles, of various sizes, move in towards the centre of the painting where they coalesce into a joyful spring landscape. The brown hare is well disguised among the flowers and looks vaguely surprised by the way his world is in the process of being created or is possibly dissolving. This is partly inspired by the fact that whilst I love springtime, the flowers blooming and wildlife and bird activity changes very quickly from one week to the next and gives me a desperate urge to experience as much of it as I can before having to wait another year! A line of yellow flowers run across the middle of the marking the edge of the river. You cannot see the river itself but it has the meadow in the foreground and trees and fields in the background. The inspiration for this painting is a place near where I live in Forest by the bank of the river Medway. The feeling I was trying to convey is my constant one – Nature is beautiful, seasons are exciting, especially April and May, and our planet and its landscapes and wildlife need to be cherished and protected. Dedicated to everyone who is doing this from the person who picks up some litter to the David Attenborough’s and Chris Packham’s of the world – it is all valuable so thank you. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed, ready to hang.
