“Temptation” - one of those "wow" paintings that celebrates nature, and it's intent is to spread love, hope, happiness and joy to those who view it.  It took me over 300 hours to paint these flowers, as there are over 10 layers of oil paint on this canvas. Definitely a labour of love, but I'm overjoyed with the result.


Some of my favourite flowers have been placed together to make a harmonious melody of colour. These luscious creations are full of exuberance that form a floral tapestry.  


It is complemented by a poem, specifically written for the painting, which weaved its way between my thoughts and the brush.


“There are no stray pathways or thorns under feet,

soft, gentle, fragrant, sweet.

Leading me to inner quiet and peace,

I lay down with beauty impressed on my cheek.

Gentle, quiet, spirit,

calming, beautiful, unique.

You are my temptation to linger in your purity.”


Measures 760 x 760 mm deep (30 x 30 inches), and is ready to hang.

The painting comes without a frame on a deep 3.5cm (1.4 inch) depth canvas, which is painted around the sides for continuation of the image to create depth.
