Canola in bloom. Acrylic paint on 40 x 0 cm stretched canvas.

On my train trip to Ballarat last Saturday I saw something I'd never seen before in my life and that was several large fields of Canola flowers in bloom. The painting above is actually a lot more golden than the digital photograph depicts. I tried to capture the essense of the work with my Windows Phone and my digital camera but neither has captured the yellow glow. The following painting is an imaginary cluster of bushes that appeared to be moving as if with an internal energy. I've entitled it, for want of a better title, a different mood.
A different mood. Acrylic paint on 45.7 x 45.7 cm stretched canvas.
