Acrylic on canvas/2023
"Flight 2023" is an evocative piece that captures the dynamic interplay between the sky's grandeur and the earth's quietude. In this painting, I have depicted a dramatic sunset, with a sunburst of orange and yellow hues dominating the sky, which transitions into a serene body of water below. The contrast of the warm sky against the cool, dark blues of the rippling water creates a sense of balance and harmony. Silhouetted birds in flight add a sense of freedom and movement, inviting the viewer to contemplate the beauty of nature and the passage of time. The thick, textured brushwork adds depth and a tactile quality, giving the painting a lively and energetic feel. This work aims to offer a moment of reflection on the beauty of natural transitions and the enduring cycle of day into night.
