Under the Daisy

Oil on Board, 122 x 40 cms, 48 x 15.75 inches

The majority of my art is concerned the small intricate world around us, within nature that we do not see.  “Under the Daisy” was inspired by what is beneath a daisy on an overgrown grass verge.  The daisy is a large Ox-eye daisy which grows abundantly around where I live in rural Sussex, UK.  In May and June, they fill the fields and grass verges, and many flowers and long grass are shorter than them so there is a micro ecosystem beneath them that we are simply unaware of. 

In this oil painting I have added corncockle, geranium and cornflowers underneath the main daisy flower.  The background is full of swirls to indicate the unknown life of creatures that live and survive all around us, yet we know nothing about.  However, this small microcosm is crucial to creating diversity to the ecosystem around it.
