My general love for muted colours is evident in most my work, so I was quite thrilled to see Artfinder and Liquitex are launching a competition with the theme ' What does muted mean to you'. This is one of the works I have entered into the competition. It is not only muted colours that attracts to my art but also my personality could be described as quite muted:) I do not express things openly or strongly as most my artworks would suggest. There are always a hidden softness or indistinct beauty evident in my work. The three peaces I have chosen to enter into the competition is not only a strong representation of what muted means to me personally, but also the prominent part this concept pays in my art work.
This painting is a glimpse into the rose garden on a misty spring morning in the magnificent rose garden of the beautifull farm called Boskey Dell Farm & Rose Garden near Plettenberg Bay,South Africa. It's just all soft and misty and the first stray morning light beams falling through the leaves that impressed me so, I just had to paint it!
