This small abstract painting reminds me of golden fields of wheat or maybe sunflower fields. Winter wheat is grown in my area, lots of fields of it. Come around mid summer, the fields have turned this beautiful shade of gold – or perhaps amber waves of grain might be a nice description.
Living in the country, there are many golden fields throughout the year. The corn turns golden, the soybeans do too. But the wheat is kind of a magical thing to me. It’s sown in the winter then it goes dormant for a while. Spring comes and as early as St. Patrick’s Day the fields are green – a welcome sight after winter. The wheat grows tall and fast. The wind whips it around magically, it’s mesmerizing to watch. Like flocks of birds flying as one, the wheat moves like waves of the ocean.
This little abstract painting is what I’d call a study. I’m studying different colors and how they interact with one another. In this case, it’s my night garden. The shapes and strokes I create provide me endless amusement. Sometimes I create brand new color palettes I love, sometimes not so much, that’s why it’s called a study. Each study is an original painting, I don’t think I could recreate them exactly if I tried.
The dimensions for this painting are 3″x3″. The painting is continued on the sides, so it looks nice from all angles. I’ve glued on a strong round magnet on the back and you can hang it in any direction you want. You can also hang these in a grouping on a wall, just hang it by a small nail. It’s very lightweight.
These original studies are a perfect way to add to or start an art collection. Each one has an individual number assigned to it. This one is 19-019. Varnished and signed on the back by me, Jaime Haney.
