The inspiration for this painting was a posy of wildflowers, picked in the spring and beginning to dry and wilt as spring moves in to summer. Painted in shimmery gold paint, this painting is prettier in person than it is on the screen!

I called this painting ‘contemplation’ because this style of painting is very meditative to me. I never know what the finished painting is going to be like when I begin – I just go with the flow, and see where the paint takes me. I love this combination of colours!

Lately I’ve been playing with an intuitive art style, where I just start out with shapes on the page and see where they take me. I don’t start with any kind of plan except perhaps some idea about the colours I’m going to use, and I just start painting. As I paint, the image evolves and changes.
While I was painting this one, I was listening to the the audiobook of Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson, part of the Stormlight Archive series. (I’m trying to re-read all the books before the newest one comes out next month!) So, when I was trying to think of a title for this piece (something I always have trouble with), I decided to name it “windrunner”, inspired by my favourite sad bridgeman.
