The heathers are vibrant in their purples and pinks throughout the Scottish Highlands. At the end of the summer as the bracken tips are turning reds and browns, the colours of the heather become brighter and prouder amongst their autumnal counterparts. It is these beauties that I've focused on for my new Highland Heathers collection as part of the September '30 Paintings in 30 Days' challenge.
Here are the practical details:
- Title: Vivacious Spirits (#1 Highland Heathers Collection)
- Oil on canvas board (280gsm, 100% cotton canvas on 100% recycled board)
- Size: 20x20cm/8"x8"
- Artist-signed on the reverse side and will arrive with a certificate of authenticity
I usually write about my paintings when I first post them in my Journal here on my website. My journal post for Vivacious Spirits was:
Vivacious spirits bloom with wild abundance as they get the first inkling of seasonal change. That first shudder as cooler air sweeps over the crofts instigates a true springing of colour and energy as the heathers leap up from their short stems in clumps of loveliness.
