40” x 40” acrylic landscape painting on gallery-wrapped canvas
I am a hiker at heart. Show me a trail, a forest (some bug spray) and I'm off! Gone. For hours. Without compass or map I'll probably get lost but lost amongst the trees isn't really lost at all. 'Hillside' is the clearing I'll find along the way, emerging from the forest to take in the view. A place to rest under a beautiful blue sky. What a day. Closed eyes, face tilted to the swooping clouds. Inhaling the memory of the moment and sharing it in this painting.
The view in this hillside abstract landscape painting is wide open, wild, and free. It’s a peaceful stop on a hike along a forest path to take in the view, revel in the vivid colours of the surrounding trees and enjoy the patterns of shadows and light created by the sunshine. Bright white clouds race above on a warm breeze, creating an abstract sky that stretches to a distant horizon.
One of the large-scale acrylic paintings in the ‘Lakelands’ collection, ‘Hillside’ is a memory of a glorious afternoon hike. The sky that afternoon was lively, the breeze shaping an abstract sky. I recreated my impressions of trees and hills as abstract shapes and colours on canvas, to reflect the movement in the clouds that first drew my attention and inspired me to paint this glorious view.
Also available as a fine art print, ‘Hillside’ is a beautiful addition to your wall decor.
