My Wee Blossom

The painting was inspired by the beautiful simplicity of Cy Twombly’s floral paintings.

The palette was inspired by my love of flowers, childlike joy and feelings of, “warmth” and “fun” and takes a cue from the Italian-inspired landscape which I so love (vibrant and muted olive greens).

I love everything about creating this gorgeous piece …

Cy Twombly is regarded as one of America’s great abstract painters. His stunning irises, roses and other floral-inspired works were created in the 60s when he was living in Rome. When I visited the Museum of Modern Art in New York many moons ago his giant canvases of abstract flowers painted in the last years of his life had a profound impact on me—I fell in love instantly.

The feeling has never left me. It’s with profound gratitude that I have gained the same reaction from people who have seen and begun collecting my work. Twombly’s paintings ripple with life and colour in large part due to the vigour and immediacy with which the paint was applied, and also the diluting of paints to a watercolour consistency which allowed for drips and runs.

I employed a similar technique in this work, and like Twombly love to paint with child-life spontaneity. Daubs, smears and drips of colourful paint applied with a brush, the brush handle and the tips of my fingers increase the sensuality.
