The changing seasons by Fern Siebler - is an original diptych painted in 2021 from my collection ‘Fragments’.
Title and inspiration from the following poem and beautiful words written by Cristen Rodgers that resonate with me very much:
"Every season of the heart has its own perfect time and an important purpose. Even those that shake you, like the harsh winds of fall shake the trees, for they help you drop unnecessary things. Even those that challenge your footing, like the rains of spring loosen the ground beneath a flower's roots, because they give you the chance to dig even deeper. And even those that feel like they chill you almost to death, like the winter cold does to the once vibrant flower, for they cleanse and ready you for the beauty of your coming spring"
I have built upon this collection for over 12 months now. The inspiration from this series came from within, truly born from my lived experiences. The series has allow me to explore who I am, the art of self-love and self-expression. Each piece is intuitive, unlike any other I create. Each mark, brush stroke, every inch of canvas is a feeling captured in that moment. A feeling released. And my mind set free to be myself.
A diptych set of two gallery wrapped canvases, each canvas is 50.5(w) x 76(h)cm. Hung side by side, the size is approximately 101 x 76cm depending on how much space is left in between. The beauty of a diptych is that you can hang them together or apart. They can be side by side, on opposite walls, on two sides of a window or pillar etc and still look like they belong together!
The edges are painted white and the paintings are on stretched canvas, unframed. Framing available upon request. Ready to hang with wire. Signed on the front, and named and dated on the back. Comes with certificate of authenticity.
Mixed media with real gold leaf scattered throughout.
Colours: Paynes grey, navy blue, dusty pinks and purples, peach, a little touch of green and lilac, browns, white and gold.
