About this Painting

When spring comes and the air feels fresh and warm with the promise of warm summer days, I know I am done waiting.  Inspired by this impatient feeling and the colours that will warm from spring into summer, I created this painting with its swirls of impatience and the teasing of colours of magenta pink, citrine lime and sienna.  

There is also a surprise in this painting that can only be seen from a certain angle and perhaps this is the more literal interpretation. 


Created for a new series called “When Summer Comes”, capturing the freedom and longing, the anticipation of summer.  The “ When Summer Comes” series explores the gestures and stances of people.  And while this painting is an abstract, you will still see these gestures if you look closely.
