Lavender in Motion by Cherie Roe Dirksen


Available to buy on…

Acrylic on Canvas
30″ × 40″

Another painting inspired, of course, by my love of Van Gogh. This one was also infused with the sounds of Debussy and Vivaldi — which is perhaps why the brush strokes show a lot of movement and energy. It was great painting this one and releasing some of my pent up emotions. :)

So much is taken for granted on a daily basis and I want to bring to the forefront colour, vibrancy, frequency, pensiveness, wonder, reflection, action and energy through my passions.

My art is how I interpret the world around me, it is how I see this life – a palette of unbelievable colours and a sea of energy. The potential every living thing has and the knowledge that everything is a manifestation of a Divine essence is, in itself, pure magic.
