This substantial piece began as messy spring drawings and slowly evolved into this semi-abstract blast of colour that pays tribute to the humble Muscari, or Grape Hyacinth. ( The drawings of the flowers originated in The Netherlands thus the name!).

Like the process I took to arrive at this painting, the Muscari is that deep blue flower that pulls itself through the mess of snow to signal spring. Blotches of blue bubble out towards the viewer, as if emerging from the background.

It is painted on 10mm board with edging to stop bowing. This could be framed or a baton added to reverse to hang as it is.
