‘Mabon’s Autumn Treasure Trove’ textured mixed media painting, with gold leaf and metallic paint. Following the celebration of Mabon, gradually the leaves turn the landscape from summer green to rust-red and golden-brown. Leaves the colour of precious metals, copper and gold, fall like lost treasure to the ground. There is a tiny autumn butterfly in the bottom left-hand corner that almost painted itself (spontaneously appearing out of the paint); I spotted it and defined it. I have collaged garnets, goldstones and pressed leaves into the painting, along with a lost coin and a real ammonite buried in the leaves. The lost coin is a 1975 South African 1 cent coin, featuring a design with birds sitting on branches. Ammonite shapes appear faintly in the textures, suggesting gusts of wind carrying the leaves through the air. The ammonite is a symbol of birth and rebirth, positive change, and longevity. The ammonite’s spiral is an example of the Fibonacci sequence in occurring in nature, and the spiral represents eternity – nothing ever dies; the spirit returns to earth in a new form. The spiral is an ancient Celtic symbol and one of the oldest patterns created by man. Woodlands are symbols of the spirit world and freedom from towns and civilisation; they are places of magick where the subconscious and imagination can run free like the creatures that live there. Inspirations and links to art history - ammonites and autumn leaves appear in artworks of John Ruskin. Trees in landscapes are the favourite subject of many artists, and I admire and I am influenced by Paul Cézanne and the Post-Impressionist’s treatment of the subject, characterised by the symbolic, emotional use of colour; the creation of images from the imagination as well as from observation; and by stressing the brushstrokes on the canvas rather than realism. The painting is ready to unwrap and hang, or it can be taken to a professional framer for a specially made canvas frame if preferred. The painting is signed on the front and on the back by artist Cyndy Cmyth, and it is sent with a Certificate of Authenticity.
