Vikki Fuller - Nest

Vikki Fuller


Painting / Oil


Original oil painting on canvas - Nest- Sometimes we get caught up in looking too long at the big picture as I was reminded while painting this nest. I thought ...what it must be like to be a bird, seeing the familiar shapes and movement, the changing shafts of golden light, the positive and negative spaces , all within a canopy of buds and leaves ever growing towards the light. Soon now, this nest which has overwintered, will be hidden by masses of new green leaves and branches, and home again to a nesting sparrow who made this her home last spring...just as Spring repeats her magic.

Nature holds a special place in my heart, as do animals. They are constant sources of inspiration for my work. Through painting, I seek to express aspects of the emotional connections we have to nature and animals. Living on an island off the coast of Vancouver, I feel very connected to the land and sea around me. The local seascapes inspire me in many ways. For me they capture a time and place that is both personal and familiar. Often, they will suggest a narrative, or story if you will. In my process, I usually sketch in charcoal first, to roughly work out an idea for a painting, working directly onto the canvas, occasionally referring to my photos. While painting, I will often have a fleeting thought, from a walk or a dream, that will bring me further insight for the painting. Painting allows me time each day to pause and reflect on what is most meaningful to me. I like to think that by painting the beauty of what I feel for so deeply, I can create moods for others to reflect on and enjoy. This is the true spirit of my work.
