Be The Sunshine

Child-like spontaneity is my new norm. I love painting on the wing and seeing people moved by spontaneity, joy, and ultimately happiness itself. This little joyful piece emerged from me during my Bloomin’ Mad exhibition in May 2022, not long after returning from the Fijian Islands.

Abstract genius Lee Krasner once said that she hated painting yellow. She tried to paint in yellows but they would never come and always became another colour. Perhaps it was the gloom and chaos and conflict of living under the shadow of the alcoholic painter Jackson Pollock. I’m the opposite, yellow always sneaks into my paintings no matter how much I try to resist it. Yellow is one of the most joyful colours I know. 

This painting and others in the Bloomin Mad (Botanical Art) Series are a call to embrace happiness, love, hope and healing in our lives to live with the purpose to uplift ourselves and each other. The collection is embodied with love, positive energy, Reiki spiritual blessings and tremendous vitality which is peaceful, enlivening and enlightening at the same time. These works of heart will bring joy to any home or office.

This painting is sold. Commissions are welcome. Imagine having a painting in the colours, size and feel-good vibe you want!
