This is an oil study of a cluster of wheat picked from the field at the bottom of my garden (I don't think the farmer will miss it!).
On 20th August I completed a 24 hour sponsored paintathon to raise funds for a church reordering project. Before the actual event I completed several studies - this is one of them. I had a few unsuccessful attempts at painting the wheat until this one flowed from a sense of frustration and desperate liberation!
The painting is 20 x 25cm unframed, about 24 x 31cm framed.
It is framed in a white wooden frame, pure and simple.
