Wild Flowers

I hope to present two paintings - one of Wild Flowers and the second of a Wave. The Wild flowers are based on photos taken at a big garden in Co. Cork. The idea of the Wave came when I was summitting paintings with the theme of 'Origin'. When I started the Wave, I got the same feeling of excitment that had got previously from seeing the flowers (and also from dancers - not in my project at the moment).
I have changed my mind - a woman's privilege. I have been struggling with my wild flowers - probably because I want too much that it will be good for the exhibition! I have a couple of things on the go, and will make final decision later!

This is one of the hundreds of photos I took when I saw the flowers for the first time.

This is one of the first paintings I did based on the flower photos. This is not the one I will present in Trapani, but just to give you an idea of what I am doing. My heart turned over when I saw these flowers. It is painted with knives only, which seems to give a 3-dimensional feeling.

This was version one of the Wave. I am now aiming to do it again but a bigger version.

Think I might have over done the layering. Also have gone in with foam too early!

Better movement in the big wave. Added more colours to wall. Need to be careful not to overdo the effect!
