Walking the yellow rapeseed fields with my guardian angel
I made a series of these little artworks in Lockdown 2. My dad died in October 2020 and due to the virus restrictions it was a difficult time. I like to imagine him now, being free to fly over his favourite Norfolk walks. Although it is shown as a 20x20cm giclee print, it can come in different sizes and formats. Contact me if you would like more information.
Walking the yellow rapeseed fields
I love the yellow rapeseed fields. I have a few favourite walks but this one in Norfolk is probably my favourite walk. It has inspired many a painting over the years. The location is the village of Hethersett, a village outside Norwich in Norfolk where I grew up. I just love the way the colours of the fields and the fauna change with the seasons.
This artwork was featured in my Free Spirit: Loss in Lockdown exhibition which took place in April 2021 in my studio 9 in Oaks Park. It was a joint exhibition between myself and poet Rachelsambrooks combining art and poetry. The exhibition was a tribute to those lost during the pandemic at a time of limited contact. It includes other works of art and poetry created by other local artists such as Traceyelizabethdowning , Ingrid Barber and Claire Chandler from the London Borough of Sutton who have lost loved ones in lockdown.
