This piece depicts some meadow grasses blowing in the wind. It was inspired by the current interest in the UK in allowing grass verges and meadows to remain uncut in a move to create more sustainable environments for wildlife. Different kinds of grass and wild flowers suddenly appear, and what appeared to be a rough cut piece of land becomes, on closer inspection, a place of beauty buzzing with insects among a myriad of different grasses and flowers.
