Fading Blooms #7

Oil on Board
54 x 35 cms, 21 x 14 inches

This is the third painting in this series that is inspired by the twisting petals of Michaelmas Daisies as they die.  As an artist, I become obsessed by my subject, and will photograph it, draw it and paint it over and over again for many months and even years.  I frequently revisit favourite subjects and paint them in a new and different way.

When Michaelmas daisies die, the petals create fantastic curling forms, which I have been fascinated by for years.  In this oil painting I have combined decaying butterfly wings amongst the curling petals.  I have done this because Michaelmas Daisies tend to flower at the end of the summer and early autumn when the butterflies also die or hibernate. This is a celebration of the end of summer with the flowers and insects laying the foundations for new life for the following year.
