Geraniums. Oil on canvas approx 17 x 23″

£850.00

Geraniums

Geraniums is approximately 17 x 23″ within a double white frame.  It is an impressionist painting of thick oil paints vibrantly applied with a palette knife with gestural movements.  The 5 shades of green, mixed from yellow and blue, provide the perfect backdrop for the rose pink and flecks of crimson red in the foreground.  As part of the ‘Flowers, figures and LA’ exhibition in May of 2018 this piece was framed well which allows it to come to life and to hold it’s own.

Inspire by my neighbour’s geranium flowers and the little pots as they dotted around her garden, I wanted to capture the fun and life of flowers. The thick oil conveys this message so well and would be a feature in any home.

As with all original artworks this will be shipped free of charge.  To purchase go straight to checkout or arrange an appointment for viewing now by dropping your name and your phone number here

About Geraniums

Geranium is a genus of 422 species of annual, biennial, and perennial plants that are commonly known as geraniums or cranesbills. They are found throughout the temperate regions of the world and the mountains of the tropics, but mostly in the eastern part of the Mediterranean region.

Geraniums come in a variety of sizes and shapes, ranging from trailing to upright and from 6 inches to a few feet high depending on the cultivar. The single, double or semi-double flowers rise above the foliage and come in just about every color from purple to orange, red, white and lavender — sometimes containing two colors. The foliage is just as variable, ranging from circular to segmented and lacy, and colored green, green and white, or combinations of red, yellow and orange. Many geraniums come with interesting scents as well.

About Aly

Aly is a Northern Irish based Artist, Writer and Educator.  One of Northern Ireland’s top artists, widely known for her Belfast prints and impressionist techniques. She has several accolades to her name, most recently:

> Nominated 40 under 40

> Listed as top 100 / Small Business Saturday

> Finalist in the East Side Awards

Aly works from a studio near Belfast which is conducive to her family life with her husband and their three young boys.

She is passionate about placing importance on everyday moments, objects and places in her oil paintings and pastel work. This is one of the many reasons Aly is a well established artist in Belfast, Northern Ireland and the United States of America.

Her practice is influenced heavily by her own childhood memories of growing up in a smallholding in the Irish countryside.

Themes of the familiar and familial can be traced back as far as her degree show in 2003 when her installation “Daddy’s bread” used 795 empty bread bags (of her father’s favourite loaf) to represent each week from when her Father passed until the opening of her final exhibition.

Aly was awarded a first class honours degree and a distinction in her Masters in Fine Art which she completed following her degree. Specializing in Acrylic, oil and Mixed Media Aly has a love for creating stunning vibrant paintings.  Along with a love of monochrome and simple sketches.

And don’t forget to check out my BLOG

Here is a place where you can find recipes, information on physical wellbeing, travel and home ideas as well as life ramblings.

I use art in all it’s mediums to express my love for the “everyday”. Coffee cups, familiar landmarks, colour associations. All of these, I believe, contribute to what is known as our “everyday”. Not only do I love drawing them, I think they are worth placing importance on.

This blog is an extension of my creativity.

I convey a realistic (the good, the bad, the funny, the sad) view into the life of a family woman, a homemaker and a business woman on a journey of physical and mental wellness.

Have fun navigating the site and don’t hesitate to send me a note if you want to know more.
