Looking up at the Corncockles

Oil on Board
40 x 125 cms, 15.75 x 49 inches

I grow the majority of the inspiration that I use in my art.  Most of my garden is full of perennial flowers because they need a lot less effort and simply grow back year after year.  What few annual flowers I do grow they always include the wildflowers, cornflowers and corncockles because of their vibrant colours and intricate shapes.  Of course, once you have grown them once or twice, they seed themselves everywhere, much to my delight, as I treat these stray flowers as little happy surprises! These two flowers also last all season, it is only the first frost that finally kills them. I grow them at the very end of the garden and l like to see them wave their heads in the breeze and I have tried to capture this movement in this painting. They are set against a backdrop of a late summer storm clouds that have been bubbling up after a long warm summer’s day.
