I painted this in summer when the light was bright, the air was clear, and the flowers were out. It reminds me of having a glass of wine on a sunny Friday evening in the garden with my best friend.
Like the other Coloured Shadows Series paintings, this one is playing with illusions of raised forms casting shadows from coloured lights (not literally - that is just the inspiration!). It appears more or less three dimensional depending on the distance of the viewer from the work, and the viewing angle.
The blueish shadow on the right wraps over the edge of the canvas, with the sides fully painted too (the shadow extends around the side).
