Artwork Description

Mixed Media on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

The journey into Lavendula Blue began when I set up on the lush soft green grass within the lavender fields in the country. The hours disappear as I work on layering of mixed media - handmade papers, dried lavender to create patterns, and texture pastes. Taking in my surroundings, the scents, sights and sounds. Over the coming days more colour and layers are added, all the while taking in the subtleties of nature and transposing them to canvas.

Sitting on a cliff by the Ocean, watching the waves as they rise and fall in rhythmic motion.  The sound as they roll showing frothy white caps. The sea breeze caresses my cheeks, leading me to relax and enjoy this moment in nature.This is the story of how Lavendula Blue was created. 
The vibrancy of colour that captivates the eye as I transcend the meandering driveway into Blueridge Lavender Farm
A rustling of leaves dancing, fragmented chirps, the breeze capturing the song of the foliage and those who live within it. The residents sing their song of welcome to our home
Country scents share their perfumes and rest gently in the air 
The treats that await, the taste of sweetness, splendour in the fresh baked lavender biscuits ready to share.
The charm of this old girl, so many stories to tell, calm, peaceful oh the serenity, here in the country.
Feel the rises and falls in the textures applied to the canvas, the blooms of the Lavender rising out from the canvas sending their fragrance  to rest in your nostrils.Think of the outback Australian landscape with stunning red ochre hues in the soils, the rises and falls of the rocky outcrops,  shadows cast by dessert oak trees, native shrubbery and grasses. The heat of the sun, how it dries and cracks the earth it touches, the scampering of small native animals and the tracks they leave behind. This artwork showcases the harsh beauty seen when being on this country through colour and texture.Use of layering techniques give a tactile experience as textures rise and fall in this vibrant work.  emulating the Australian arid Landscape through colour including red and yellow ochres, blue, orange -sunset orange - more like a burnt orange, yellows and charcoal.
