Lucy Car Australian Emerging Artist
My art is happy art. I paint with bold acrylic paint on canvas bright, expressive flowers, birds and animals that bring joy.
Each of the attached works bring me great satisfaction because they celebrate nature and colour and harmony. I often paint Australian flowers because their bold shapes and colour delight me, but recently I’ve been enjoying exploring more traditional spring flowers with their bright pops of colour and anticipation for the season to come. I love quirky, so I’ve been inspired to paint a watermelon vase with fruit and vegetable flowers, a portrait of Aussie cattle dogs on a regal Chesterfield chair and a colourful array of tropical fruit that grow where I live.
I live on a property which has rainforest, fruit, vegetables, ducks, chickens and a large flower garden. This inspires me to paint nature around me. It is very easy to become disheartened with the world around us; I would love to think I would spark some joy in the person looking at my work and having it in their home, a nugget of optimism to move us forward.
I have five children who bring a vitality to my painting and in turn inspire me with their innocent delight. I am re-discovering my love of art as they grow up and go to school. It has been magical to find this passion which has laid semi-dormant when they were little. ~ @lucycarart
