Exploring nature

It has been sometime, I know, since I painted another creation.  Finally, I have taken the time to create/paint my latest.

I am loving the inspiration that allows me to listen to the wind, watch the grasses sway in the breezes and smell the various scents that drift over me.

Feel this painting which I have entitled ‘Whispering Grasses’ and let your imagination take you on a journey of discovery!

One picture shows a close up and the second I have taken at an angle to show how it has been completed around the sides of this boxed canvas.

I began the sequence of painting with applying droplets of wax which were then hot air dried.  After this I used my hot iron to smooth the waxes and then angled my iron to created the grasses.

Measuring just 23.5” x 15.5” it is neither too small or too large.  Now to find the right space for it!

Oh Pat! I think this is one of your best! I love this...can see and feel the movement in it, feel the breeze that moves the grasses, can even hear the hiss grasses make when they are moving in the wind.

Right on! You have something there!

I love it also Pat. The way you laid it out, it makes you feel like your lying on a blanket in a field of these grasses, listening and looking up.....very calming, relaxing.

I really like that wheat painting. I like the color scheme. It's so nice to look at, very pleasing to the eyes.
