From the artist:
Oils, Liquin Impasto, Thinner, on canvas Inspired by William Wordsworth quote “of splendour in the grass, Of glory in the flower…….” (Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood) It urges the human being to look beyond the loss and grievances of life and realise the ‘radiance’ within you. Rather than grieve, be faithful and mindful of what remains. This radiance always resides in you – people and places become part of you. The narrator in the poem reflects on scenes in nature with the beauty of the mind and complexity of innocence and experience. The artist wanted to portray the beauty in simple things in our environment and how we are surrounded by beauty but often don’t stop to notice – even wildflowers on the side of the road can change an outlook.
