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: Petalled Hearts (#15 Highland Heathers Collection)
- Oil on canvas board (280gsm, 100% cotton canvas on 100% recycled board)
- Size: 20x20cm/8"x8" (3mm depth)
- Artist-signed on the reverse side and will arrive with a certificate of authenticity
Bursts of purple heather arch their petalled hearts upwards. Their beauty spreads like a permeating fragrance that touches the soul or reawakens a fond memory. For a moment one can be lost in the vision, it's effect felt as a shot of oxygen through smog when one least expects it. Fleeting but noteworthy, something to be stowed for a time where you need reminding of life's treasures.
