'Succulent' Original oil painting by Emma Miller. 30 x 40 x 4cm box canvas. Signed. Prints Available.
The Sparkling Sea & Wrought Iron Railings of Brighton Pier. The Pier is so beautiful with it's weathered white curls, and has been worn smooth in places where so many happy steps have been taken and so many happy faces have peeked over at the glittering sea. I wanted to capture that excited feeling when you first catch the fresh sea breeze and first twinkle of the water on a summer holiday. Original Oil Painting By Emma Miller.
Girl with Pearls & Red Roses
A young woman on the cusp of change, the Girl With Pearls & Red Roses is a portrait using a minimal palette and high contrast to focus the viewer on the importance of the moment. The world around her disappears as she summons the courage to look up and face what is before her. Although afraid, she is resolved, and we know this is the deep breath that comes before a courageous moment, and ultimately, freedom. For me, red roses (Particularly this variety) symbolise courage & freedom. The pearls symbolise the wisdom and endurance that can come from suffering. She was initially created in digital format, before being carefully reproduced in oils on canvas. Original Oil Painting by Emma Miller. 30 x 40 x 4cm Box Canvas. Signed. Prints Available.
An intriguing flower, hydrangea's can be either hot pink & purple if they are growing in alkaline soil, or blue and lilac if they are in acidic soil. This particular bloom caught my eye as it encompasses both the warm and cool palette within one plant, creating a gorgeous pastel landscape with rich vibrant shadows. The contrast and the closeness of the blooms makes such a charming dance of petals intertwining in their different hues. I almost see them as bustling ballerinas dancing in the morning sun.Original Oil Painting by Emma Miller.

SOLD. Prints available. Santorini is Famous for it's beautiful colours and stunning sunsets. The white painted buildings are transformed by the light through the course of the day and go from brilliant white to gold to lilac & blue as the sunny day becomes a balmy evening. I passed this doorway at the perfect moment, just as the sun became one with the glittering Aegean Sea, and the whites became a pastel rainbow of light and shadow, with the rope aglow with warmth. I aimed to capture the beautiful light that seems unique to this special place, and the feeling that there is always colour and light danching in the shadows. This scene still makes my heart soar when. Original artwork by Emma Miller. Oil Painting on Stretched Canvas. Prints Available.
