Beauty from Ashes
79 x 79 x 5.5 cm
Framed in Ash
Acrylic on Stretched Canvas
In the broken, fallen, old and forgotten there's a certain charm and definitive beauty to still find. Beauty from ashes. I can't help but be reminded of that sentiment when taking in this floral still life. It brings to mind run down French or Italian villas with their charming old world gardens. Villas with aged plaster and concrete walls, dilapidated timber window boxes with flaking paint, rustic timber tables etched with years of dining history, and of course, colourful vintage clay pots full of handpicked blooms, just starting to drop their petals.
In a gorgeous rich palette of dark forest greens, warm umbers, pretty pinks, and navy and teals, the texture in this painting is equally as beautiful...hard to capture in pics! I hope you will treasure it like I do.
NB: While every effort is made to capture the true colours and details of my artwork, every screen is different and art viewed online does not do my work justice. Slight differences may be evident between a screen image and the true tone of my work which is more vivid and beautiful in reality. Scale may also be slightly off due to the insitu art app used, so please ensure you measure your space. Thank you!
