Briana Jamieson, Winter Glow ~ Jonquils, 2021

610 x 460mm
Oil on board, framed in Tasmanian oak 

Winter Glow is a series of oil paintings with accompanying poems, which dwell on glowing moments found in the depths of winter: fresh, sweet scented bulbs; crisp days with low sun and hazy skies; candlelit tables; plants growing on soft, sandy beaches; wide open fields bathed in light.


at 6am you walk along the quiet road / birds chirp as the first glow appears in the sky / when the sun sets, a haze settles over the valley / tissue paper skies / thin curve of moon resting in the pale twilight

in the gardens you sit on a steep hill in the long grass / winter trees reach to the sun / cascading with glowing new growth / lime-green buds and leaves / a scattering of warm light / a soft breeze / fresh air
