It might be wishful thinking on my part but summer is coming. This painting with an arrangement of violets evokes I think the warmth of a summer evening that you might see here in Provence, when the heat haze rising from the ground diffuses objects in the distance.

The painting developed out of colours that came off my palette at the end of a day’s painting on another piece. It then dried for a few days and came together today.

I am pleased with this piece as the colours are vibrant but at the same time bear a subtle relationship to each other to give an overall calm mood.

I’d love to hear what you think.
