Artist Statement: Every year around October the Jacaranda blooms, everyone talks about it, it's a topic of great excitement! What you don't hear about are "the little yellow trees". These I find every bit as exciting and perhaps for me anyway, even a little bit more exciting.
The weather is warming, these trees burst into bloom with a piercingly sharp yellow! They are slender and unassuming until they burst into life!
For me, I can't wait to paint them, goodness knows what form they will assume each year but this factor is common to all of my little yellow pics, they will radiate energy, fun, and optimism. - John Maitland.
Medium: Acrylic oil board
Dimensions: 60 x 120 cms
