Secrets of Nature is named to encourage people to really look at the painting closely. It is not just another landscape and flower oil painting. Within the Iris I have incorporated a human form, it is neither flower, nor human but both.
When people see my art, I want them to see two things, the surface of the painting, a beautiful flower, a landscape, but also the environmental message that I am hinting at underneath. This is why this oil painting is pale and all the subjects are camouflaged so that you really need to look at the painting to see it. The human race needs to begin to understand that it is a part of nature not apart from it. To appreciate nature and to save the million's species becoming extinct we need to recognise that all the harm we do is ultimately to ourselves. The secret to save nature, is us.
