Blue thou art, intensely blue; Flower, whence came thy dazzling hue? - James Montgomery

Wietzie created "Intensely Blue" with a painting knife using different mark making techniques, which resulted in a textured surface. The flowers are done impasto style.

Wietzie uses the symbol of the flower to create a special intimacy with the audience, the latter being the perfect representation of human emotion: "it changes every minute and dies too early".

The intention is to create finished work that is abstracted and more expressional than representational. Wietzie was inspired by the works of Joan Mitchell using layered fields of color that became a language.

The sides are painted. The painting would also look lovely framed.
