Fresh from my studio a painting from my series of oil paintings Gates of Paradise.  It is always deeply satisfying finishing a painting.  http://ift.tt/2tw3w8c - #annemiddleton #gatesofparadise #anemone #gbartconsulting #oilonlinen #oilpainting  #inmystudio #melbournelife #melbourneartist #australianart #australianartist #contemporaryart #insitu

My paintings are rich in symbolic meaning. The Celts honoured the wren's fastidiousness and believed her lesson was to effect small but significant positive change in our daily lives. Auguries were drawn from her chirping and locating this tiny and elusive bird became a metaphor for finding the elusiveness of divinity in life.  Detail from my oil on linen painting Malurus cyaneus. Divine Augur and Bird of Bright Cheer 2017. - #oilonlinen #oilpainting #annemiddleton #floriography…
