Thistles & Meadow Brome

Impressionist painting of grass, grain and field flowers.

Since my childhood I love to walk alongside grain fields on warm summer days. There is something very special about summer grain and the typical grasses and flowers, which grow along the edges of a field.

A very special smell, when the sun shines bright and hot on the grain, the soft crackle sound if the wind blows a little bit, the typical light dust, which arises from the ripe plants and lets the air glow, and of course, the singing of grasshoppers.

Also, the colors keep on fascinating me, because they are so diverse, at the same time harmonic and full of contrast. I love nature’s colors anyway and find the color combinations, one can find in nature, especially beautiful.

With my series “Field Impressions”, I try to capture the positive memories, the smell, the light and the colors on canvas. So, it is not about a realistic painting of a piece of nature, but about the illustration of feelings and (sometimes rather vague) memories with acrylics on canvas.

So, this is part one of a series, which I want to extent to at least 20 paintings.
It is painted with acrylics on stretched canvas. The sides are painted as well, so that there is no frame necessary. The painting is ready to hang. Size: 9.5 x 11.8 in (24 x 30 cm).
