Acclaimed Scottish Artist, Ann Oram returns to Thackeray Gallery with a wonderful collection of colourful still lifes, breath-taking landscape, inspired by the local beauty of her home.

About

This latest group of paintings reflects the ordinary landscape of Scotland. There are no heroic mountains or Lochs; the views are about what I see most days, and know very well.

The meadows and fields are to be found in Fife (where I used to live), but also in the Scottish Borders where we moved to last year. The flowers and field edges are from a walled garden and farm, in Fife. A very favourite location.

The seasons are reflected in this collection of paintings; from the height of summer with its abundance and glorious colour, to the depths of winter. Here the dark skies, snow and bare trees make for startling subject matter. There can be a clarity and simplicity in winter, which I love. Almost as much as I love a fallow field or a profusion of wild flowers on a country walk.

In addition to the landscapes, I have painted a group of colourful still life. Of course flowers predominate here, as do my collection of jugs, vases and plates!  Winter time and colourful still life, go together in Scotland
