Spellbound Summer is a 30x30inches original oil painting on canvas of a white owl flying over a summer meadow full of wildflowers. The owl is seen against deep green and blue trees and appears to be flying through a gold transparent veil as she brings a touch of magic to the meadow. There is magic in nature and when I walk through a summer field especially, I see abundant life and activity. A summer field is nature’s internet – wherever you look something is trying to be noticed. That exuberance is what inspired this painting. The painting style is semi abstract as I have blurred the edges and added details towards the centre to give an idea of zooming into the landscape. I like this effect as it is like a snapshot of a memory with some emotions added and fits with my desire to make paintings like little windows that you can escape to whenever you need to! Dedicated to all the ramblers and dog owners I meet when out walking. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed. I made two short videos of the creation of this painting which you can see here: https://youtu.be/ENfm_GWU7wU and https://youtu.be/Jm-Jpa2N2bs
