Violet Skies - ORIGINAL
'Violet Skies' is the latest painting in my 'starscapes' series that pays homage to the celestial beauty of the night sky in rural Australia. It depicts a vast starry sky above a single pitched roof house in a hilly landscape with a rambling creek in the foreground. There is a sense of the majestic sky and the resident of this humble country home being perfectly at peace with each other. It's the comfort of being at home in nature.
The name of this whimsical mixed media painting is inspired by Don McLean lyrics in the song "Starry Night" about Vincent Van Gogh - "Swirling clouds in violet haze".
"Violet Skies" is a mixed media piece (acrylic paint, water soluble oil pastels, posca pens) framed in a floating beech canvas ready to hang. Both the canvas and the frame have been sealed with a matt varnish. The overall size including frame is 30x30cm and the canvas is 20x20cm. The 'hanging' apparatus is a simple countersunk key shaped hole.
