Artist's description:

A one-of a kind piece, this still-life has an expectant, longing quality.
Silvery blues of the sky create an impression of a frozen movement, as we know the clouds to be racing across the sky. In a languid heat just before the rain, the heavy, luxurious peonies on the windowsill are in anticipation of the first drops.

As I painted the shapes of the flowers and the sky to be in dialogue with each other, my wish was to create a feeling of a hot day, waiting to be interrupted by the heavy and mischievous summerrain.

Like all of my works, the painting is made on a heavy-duty natural canvas that I stretch and triple-prime myself, to achieve the highest quality of surface. Working exclusively with oil paints I use my own signature technique of colour contrasts to create this glowing and atmospheric effect.

Materials used:

heavy-duty natural canvas, triple-primed, oil paints
