"Fields of Gold"

Regular price $245.00 $0.00

Fields of Gold is a 12x12 x 1.75 inch original mixed media painting on canvas. This painting is inspired by the 1993 song of the same title by Sting. Colors are golds, greens and pale blues inspired by the song's lyrics.  Before painting each song, I close my eyes and listen to the music. Usually an image emerges that inspires me, and I try to capture it in paint. For this piece, I immediately saw a field of yellow flowers set against a summer sky.  Flowers included are bright yellow daisies a small zinnia,  and other happy blooms. Mixed media include: sheet music from the song, tissue paper, book pages, a bookmark from India and handmade Nepalese paper.

Signed & titled on reverse and fitted with wire to hang on the wall without a frame.

Here are some of the lyrics from this glorious love song: 

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we walk in fields of gold
So she took her love
For to gaze a while
Upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold
Will you stay with me?
Will you be my love?
Upon the fields of barley
We'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we lie in fields of gold
