Unusually this painting was deliberately created with the intention of turning it into Christmas cards hence the rather predictable green and red start to this piece. In the spirit of getting myself organised for Christmas I started this in October but life had a different idea. So over the Christmas break I started playing around with this piece and seeing whether it would go.
Gold is the colour of desire according to St Clair’s The Secret Lives of Colour. Unlike my usual greetings cards this painting was deliberately created to end up being cards. I started out in October intending to create Christmas cards for friends and family. Life had a different idea though and time passed by and I missed that opportunity.
