"Mum, can we go see the birds?"

Original bokeh oil painting

Leaving the Winter Garden, you're on the way to the Aviaries - glasses still slightly fogged from being in the warm, humid hot house. This circular garden is layered with flowers and foliage and surrounded by trees. It is a roundabout in a very literal sense, but also 'roundabout' in an approximative sense, given the blur of bokeh scrubbing the details. This is Queens Park to those who know it, but could be any celebrated botanical garden in the world.

This painting belongs to a series of Bokeh Paintings recently exhibited at the Art Attic Gallery as part of the 'B' Exhibition. The 'blurry light'/bokeh evokes a sense of wistful nostalgia. The soft focus gives the painting an air of abstraction and conveys a message of the ways light finds you through the darkness and the beauty of taking the focus off the 'sharp edges' and 'gritty details'.
