I love the shape and energy and mood of natural things. To me, flowers are not static but are filled with life and energy and miracles.
The Orange Groves are the opposite - though they grow and change, there is a serenity in the permanance of the hills and the cycle of the seasons. They are painted from the village where my mum lives and I love that no matter how much I, or my life changes, they are always essentially the same,  just quietly getting on with growing. I also think the oranges are hilarious. Big round and orange unde a blue sea sky,  mad!
