The Looseness of Being

Flower Power #30

The garden is brimming with delights at the moment. Its a wild place to be honest – with gushings of green of all different textures, shades and forms. Yet dotted in amongst all this foliage are flowers, some completely wild, others those that have been planted, but all revealing something of nature’s beauty. Trying to capture, or respond to, the sensuous essence of these blooms is a challenge to any artist. Too loose – and there’s no definition, too formal – and there’s a lack of naturalness. After a number of attempts to paint this collection of blossoms and foliage, perhaps its the final sketch that I’m most pleased with.

Left with the use of my left arm/hand only, after a serious motor cycle accident in 2005, I am learning to adapt to life with a brachial plexus injury and have developed a style of playing guitar using open tunings. I love drawing, painting and generally messing around in a fairly loose fashion. Can't describe myself as an artist, but perhaps a doodler with intent.
