Briana Jamieson, Winter Glow ~ Sea Rocket, 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.

Sea Rocket

you walk to the beach and sit in the sun next to sea plants with small mauve flowers / you run your hands through the sand / it feels silky and so good to touch / the top layer is warm with sun / in shadows the sand is cool and dry / you stand and dance / moving your body through the air / drawing through the sand with your feet as the ocean washes in and out
