Invasion! Rachael Herman (2012), Oil on canvas, 406 mm x 305 mm
Adversary of the humble hay-fever suffer, this fiendish yellow flower has become the source of inspiration for my most recent painting. Entitled, Invasion!, this piece serves to commemorate that time of year, around late Springtime, when East Anglia is subject to a sudden onslaught from this seemingly unsuspicious beast. Noses astream and eyes ablaze from scratching, this foe sure a sinus’ worst nightmare.
Such a shame, as it is rather a delightful colour combination: the cadmium yellow against that azure sky.
