Infinity of Nature, an oil painting of leaves on a 100x100cm Canvas.
Here is the story of how I painted this picture, it is my largest painting to date, and sums up well my views of the world,
My leaf paintings highlight the balance in nature. Infinity of Nature is my largest leaf painting to date, it is 100x100cm painted in Oil on Linen. I started with a walk around my local suburb, collecting only fallen leaves that caught my eye, I brought them home and scattered them on a board a bit bigger than the size I want to paint, for this one I placed the bright leaves in the shape of the infinity symbol, on a background of more muted coloured leaves, to reflect on how mother nature, manages to reduce the leaves to compost, recycling and reusing their nutrients, in and ongoing cycle. Then I photographed it, as I cannot paint fast enough from life, to capture it before they alter, because even though they have fallen they are still changing with time.
Infinity of Nature captures my cares about the health of the planet, and cherishing its ecosystems, I do what I can to reduce my impact and recycle my waste. My paintings are each designed to reflect the worlds beauty at its best and to convey this message.
My vision going forward is to refine my work further, improve my reach and increase my support of entities that protect of our fragile Earth (and did I mention eat chocolate!)
