Finding Creative Inspiration: The Firework Flowers Collection

Wanting to give a little nod to the Blomster Collection, I brought 18k gold leaf into the mix. My first time applying real gold leaf was hilarious. I had no idea it’d float like a feather around my studio and shatter into bits if I merely breathed next to it.

This collection is of storms; coming, going, just about to break. Clouds that are in motion - moving, erupting and then dissipating again. You can see movement in every sky painted, swift winds that are taking your eye from one corner to the next, just as each day this year has swept you from one extreme to another.

So many of the pieces have little hidden gold details that can’t be seen fully until the sunlight shines on them and they reveal themselves. It’s one my favorite aspects of the paintings. They almost change personalities when they go from no sunlight to being cast in it. That change brings a smile to my face every time I see it happen.
