'Summer Nights' is a new artwork by Australian artist Carol Atkins from her Rainforest to the Sea series which she has described as "Inspired by Port Douglas, Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef."
Carol is drawn to the panorama of the ocean, beaches and tropical areas and the beautiful paradise featuring an array of colours, birds, marine life all set against the constant background of the ebb and flow of the sea.
Fig trees of the rainforest represent “forest kings” to Carol’s eye. She imagines these tall and beautiful trees as having years of stories hidden in their branches and their expansive root systems which thrust deep into the earth represent longevity and stability. Her paintings depict this complexity and are rendered in a beautiful, vibrant palette.
Carol’s artistic joy is simple – she revels in life and nature. For her, being in the sea or catching a wave and looking back to shore; revelling in the shades of the sand; in trees being illuminated and the sun shifts and the light changes, is all it takes to inspire her next painting.
This work is painted in canvas and comes unframed and rolled in a tube.
