Grey Skies Change, by Alex Mcintyre is on the cusp of spring. It is when the wildness softens slightly. It is the time of year when I am eagerly watching naked branches, like a cheerleader for every whispering of green. The countryside is about to become verdant, the green fuse beginning… but not just yet. This painting began before we could see the leaves budding, whilst the trees were still dreaming up their possibilities. It evolved as little lime balls appeared. And bit by bit as the world turned almost emerald, the birds sang louder. This painting is in seasonal celebration and gratitude. Created in early 2020, the painted surface is both engraved or carved and raised in relief, giving it a three dimensional feel.
