Wildflowers – Close to my Heart: New Zealand Landscape Art  – An Original Landscape Painting of a wildflower scene by Artist Kirsten McIntosh

This painting was created for an exhibition titled ‘Our Times’.

The theme of the exhibition was to give audiences of the exhibition an opportunity to see how the artist captures how the community is living through this very challenging period of Covid restrictions and lockdowns.

I took this opportunity to show this period of time from my point of view and the series of paintings all reflect this.

This image was sought from an international photographer, with permission.  And I feel that this period of time made me reflect on how we can start living for the small moments in life and so I thought this beautiful field of wildflowers makes me feel just that.  It also reminds me of my childhood where I loved to plant wildflowers in my Mums beautiful garden.

This is a pivot from my normal art style but it just seemed to flow so nicely.  Many many layers have been put into this artwork and it was very freeing to paint in this style.  Once again I chose to use a limited colour palette but chose that slight purple hue to wash over it and give that lovely sunset feeling to the piece.

I always want my works to look consistent.  Six or seven colours are used in my paintings.  I am trying to achieve harmony within the painting and my whole series of artworks.

I have also added a small teddy bear on the rim of the canvas which is to represent the movement to encourage people to place a teddy where it can be seen from the street ‘We’re not scared – NZ Bear Hunt’.  There will only be four paintings with this added.

Prints of this artwork are available on request through my contact page.

Thanks for viewing.
