Details From My “The Daisies Are Out” Painting

Up close the painting reveals its secrets, tells you more of its story. How the brush moved across the surface, here slow and there fast. Suddenly the brush is turned and the tip of the handle scraped through wet paint for a sense of things seen in shadows. The brush bristles are dipped into water to mix juicier paint to place over paint applied with a scratchier brush. Splatters of pollen fly across.

In a painting every plant can flower at the same time, a memory of all the colours of spring and summer together in sunshine and rain.
