Artist's description:

Crimson Blooms and Wild Honey is a large abstract expressionist painting measuring 200 x 100 x 3 cm on two panels designed to be hung next to each other, each measuring 100 x 100 x 3cm
Honey gold flowers drip down the landscape, warm and rich. Blood red roses, nestled in the undergrowth, a crimson secret, bold as wine, beautiful in their wild decay. Autumn gold light refracts in the air, guilding everything it touches. I see the final flourish of the crimson rose before it succumbs to natures cycle. Petals wilt and flow to ground, still startling in their velvet hue. These lovely perilous wild things, falling into winter sleep.
Sometimes colours are astounding. An early morning of golden light set against the remnants of night. Leaves that have fallen, copper and bronze, striking in their contrast to summers green. A petal of a crimson rose…blood red. This is my inspiration for Crimson Blooms and Wild Honey. I wanted to create a large semi abstract work which was essentially bold colour which signified Autumn. In my garden I have a rose bush which flowers with a stunning crimson bloom. The colour is blood red and the thorns are wicked. I decided to incorporate this into the colours of Autumn as this rose bush refuses to bow to Winters approach. New buds keep appearing as old flowers wilt and decay. I particularly wanted to signify the strength of colour and how the bloom melts into the landscape, like petals falling to earth. By keeping the painting abstract the viewer can find new focus points within the colours as flowers come into focus. The painting holds your attention and is warm and rich. Juxtaposed to this abstract symphony of colour are beautiful delicate butterflies, highlighting the savage beauty of an autumnal garden. Crimson Blooms and Wild Honey is on stretched canvas on two bespoke wooden frames each measuring 100 x 100 x 3cm giving a total image size of 200 x 100 x 3cm. The boxed edges are painted black. This painting is ready to hang.
