This piece was a bit of experiment. I’ve played before with intuitive art, and I really enjoy it – it is so relaxing. I love just putting the paint on the paper and seeing where it takes me. The biggest problem I have with this art style is knowing when to stop! I tend to get carried away adding more and more details.
To be honest I wasn’t sure what I thought of this piece when I first finished it, but it is growing on me (ha!).
I uploaded this to My Redbubble store and I love the way it looks on some of the products they offer, especially the home décor items. I’m tempted to get myself an apron!
You can purchase the original painting from my Etsy store, and get prints and other products like the ones below from Redbubble.
For this whimsical painting of brightly coloured trees, the title ‘Forest Flags’ was inspired by the following quotation:
“The forests are the flags of nature. They appeal to all and awaken inspiring universal feelings. Enter the forest and the boundaries of nations are forgotten. It may be that some time an immortal pine will be the flag of a united peaceful world.” – Enos A. Mills
