fading blooms

echinaceas flowers bird


Oil on Board
80 x 80 cms, 31.5 x 31.5 inches

Virtually all my inspiration is grown from seed in my garden in the heart of the Sussex, UK.  This painting is based upon the Echinacea’s, or Cone flowers, dying, with the centres becoming more domed shaped and the petals losing their vibrant pink colour and shrivelling and changing shape.

I am fascinated by the natural forms that are created around me in my local landscape.  I document every stage of a flower with my camera to capture these changes in shape.  So many gardeners clear the dead flowers away, but instead I watch how they change.  In fact, so many of these “dead” flowers are in fact producing food which are a vital food source to the birds during the cooler months.  Beyond the flowers, in the painting, is a goldfinch painted as camouflage to the background, because I have observed these birds eat the seeds and peck away at the cones. This oil painting is a reminder to every gardener not to clear their dying summer plants away.
