Artist Caroline Shotton – Are these cows upset? ‘blue’ even?

This is the latest Caroline Shotton release ‘Blue Moon’ box canvas.

Around the whole outline of the moon itself are hand placed, jewels which is a lovely finishing touch to this wonderfully vibrant piece.

Before this piece came out my favourite colour for a Shotton background was red but now, with the very deep blue, I think this is now the clear winner.

There is some hidden depth to this painting, the detail in the top half of the sky and the craters in the moon. It is a tribute to Caroline that she makes these paintings look so ridiculously simple but in fact there is a strong artistic intelligence behind them.

Blue moon but very happy cows!

thanks

Emily
