Artwork Description

Oil Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed with a certificate of authenticity.

Hope Springs Eternal - original oil painting by Eve Sellars.

This painting started with big washes of bright high-pigment colour, followed by layers of neutral brush strokes and details. I love painting gum trees and foliage - you'll see this throughout most of my portfolio. It represents my complete love for Australian native flora; gum trees, eucalyptus leaves, gum nuts and blossoms in an abstract composition featuring neutral grey, purple, mauve, violet and brown, complemented by bright blue, pink, green and yellow.

The contrast is harmonious as well as striking.

Framing is available at an additional charge however it is not necessary as this painting is stretched over an internal frame and is therefore ready to hang. The edges are painted warm grey in a similar tone to the rest of the painting.

'In situ' photos help us imagine art in our home. Feel free to reach out with pictures of your own space and I can virtually insert the painting for you. In situ photos provided here were created using the Artrooms app and may not be perfectly to scale. Photos of framed art are for illustrative purposes only.

Born into a family of musicians, authors, actors, photographers and painters, it was natural that life lead me here, poised at the canvas, brush in hand. I live entirely off-grid at my bushland home in rural Victoria with hubby, dogs and a gorgeously prolific vegetable garden.

I use art to express my immense - well, let's say obsessive - passion for the indigenous landscape, which is easily recognised in my vibrant colourful and sensitive artworks. Luscious layers of pigment are applied with energy and spontaneity, often switching from brush to palette knife to provide additional texture and depth to my paintings.

Like something similar in a different size or using different colours? I am really happy to discuss commission requests.

My paintings are treated with the greatest care throughout their life in my studio and home, or at exhibitions where they may temporarily hang. Your new artwork will be carefully wrapped in bubble-wrap and sturdy cardboard.

Delivery is via courier, with insurance included.
