60cm x 60cm
Acrylic, soft pastel and mixed media on raw linen canvas (incorporating vintage embroidered silk, vintage lace and pages from a W.J. Latham's 1935 book on Somerset as well as grit, sand, corrugated cardboard and handmade paper). Blush pink, white with hints of shimmering gold and ochre with soft charcoal detail.
When thinking of British flora and fauna at this time of year I can’t help but think of those long quiet lazy days in the hot sun in the English countryside where everything borders on drying out, the grain fields are ready for harvest and the gentle sounds of the birds and insects are the only intrusion into the stillness that seems to glow golden in the shimmering heat. Yet there is an energy that radiates from the countryside alive with busy insects, where the butterflies flutter and the wild flowers sway in the breeze whilst the clouds drift by above.
This piece hopes the capture those feelings with the help of pages from Latham’s Further Wanderings in Somerset from 1935 which talks fondly of rose gardens, sparrows and house martins.
Full of texture and hinting at landscapes, this abstract piece invites you to discover the fondly written accounts of house martins, sparrows and roses and feel the enveloping shimmering heat of still English summers where time seems to slow. The softly glowing clouds lend the piece a warm soporific effect whilst the radiating explosive detail captures the energy and sounds of the countryside alive with insects and birds. Painted cow parsley and daisies are more representational of British flora whilst the vintage lace and torn pages offer a sense of timelessness associated with our English heritage. #abstractart#openstudios#abstractpainting#abstractartist#abstractpainter#artistsoninstagram#artist#originalartwork#britishartist#contemporaryart#homedecor#abstractexpressionism#englishcountryside#artstudio#interiordecor#artgallery#moon#moonpainting#newentartcompetition2019@newentartcompetition

Let🌬 your soul & spirit fly".🌅🖌 Hi guys, happy Sunday to all of you!!😊😘
The ocean, it contains so many colors. Silver at dawn, green at noon, dark blue in the evening. Sometimes it looks almost red. Or it will turn the color of old coins. Right now the shadows of clouds are dragging across it, and patches of sunlight are touching down everywhere. White strings of gulls drag over it like beads
Hello lovely followers!
For any newbies to my page here’s a wee intro to who I am....
My name is obviously Shona Harcus, I live in beautiful Perthshire in Scotland 🏴 I have a wonderfully supportive husband and two beautiful children, my boy is nearly 4 and my little girl is 2.
We also have a pointy nose whippet called Archie...doesn’t every artist need a hound?!
I’m an abstract expressive painter who makes far too much mess but needs must!
I studied Fine Art through UHI on the beautiful Hebridean island North Uist!
My current body of work is about my memories of landscape/seascape and places I have been. I love colour, texture and energy all of which you’ll find in my work.
I currently have paintings on show in Auchterarder at @dngauchterarder gallery and a ‘Feature’ show of my work at the @greengallerylifestyle in Dollar. Please pop by any of these galleries if you’re in Scotland or view my work online at www.shonaharcusart.co.uk
And that’s all for now folks!
Contemplating my next move. That small one in the middle is the last to be finished. To save space I’ve been painting on canvas rolls, stapled and stretched on foam board so I can move them around while they dry. In a few weeks I will be moving into a new studio where I can spread out a bit more... (and hopefully channel my creativity into my paintings instead of logistics!) ... looking forward to sharing it with you soon.
