I am always secretly pleased when people want to touch my paintings. Creating an illusion of texture in oil paint is particularly challenging and the great master of this was The 18th century French artist Chardin.  Detail of my oil on linen painting Lilac. Open the Heart Bearing Memories from Afar. 2015.  http://ift.tt/2tw3w8c - #gatesofparadise #annemiddleton #gbartconsulting #oilonlinen #texture #oilpainting #inmystudio #contemporaryart #australianartist

It's a cold and grey day and I am in my studio dreaming of warm sunny days and dragonflies!

In my studio today... Loving painting this melange of citrus hues - a commissioned oil painting in my Gates of Paradise series.  http://ift.tt/2tw3w8c - #gatesofparadise #citrus #oilonlinen #oilpainting #annemiddleton #gbartconsulting #botanicalart #australianartist #contemporaryart #inmystudio #melbournelife #melbourneartist #australianartist

One of my prime delights in oil painting is the application of the paint itself. Zoom in. What appears photographic on your screen has a distinctly painterly physicality.  Detail of Tulipa liliacea 2012 oil on linen 96x126cm. http://ift.tt/2tw3w8c - #annemiddleton #oilpainting #oilonlinen #colourmixing #botanicalart #contemporaryart #gbartconsulting #oilpaint #paintapplication #juicy #australianartist #tulip #dewdrop

Revisiting a detail from my oil painting  Plegadis falcinellus.... Zoom in to see a rich juxtaposition of magenta orange and luscious purples. Scrumptious!

Looking back at images from my Melbourne exhibition earlier this year this painting remains a personal favourite.

In my studio contemplating the delicate hue of the female bowerbird evokes the qualities of jade: wisdom balance and peace. In past millenia the Chinese regarded jade as crystallised moonlight fallen down to earth from the heights of the holy mountains.

Bees remind us to be industrious. This detail of a honey bee I painted in 2010 is a symbol of endurance and energetic enterprise - an integral part of any artistic endeavour! Wonderful art is usually the flower of many hours of intense focus rather than the poetic inspiration that is perceived. Check out the work of @mr.feathers_ to be inspired by the stunning outcome of meticulous labour.  #gatesofparadise #australianart #contemporaryart #gbartconsulting #botanicalart #oilpainting…
