AbundancePosted: May 13, 2016
The growth and colours of Spring got me thinking about this oil painting I made a few years before 2010 (I neglected to put the date on it). It’s a fantasy of abundant life that I recently brought out of hiding and onto a living room wall. I hadn’t thought of making strings of flowers before looking at the work of the great Japanese woodcut artist, Shiko Munakata. Though this painting is nothing like his prints, the idea to have cascading flowers and fruit came from some of his joyous work.
