This is a painting of hope and encouragement, strength and drive to reach the stars and keep a hold of them. Soar and never stop, dream and keep on hoping. Dance to your own music, sing your own songs and pray you always have the strength to do so. The following poem goes with the painting called “I Will Shine”
A robe made of feathers
Sheer but covering,
Flowing yet steady and secure.
Wrapped in white she professes to all
“I will shine.”
About this piece:
Each piece of the background has quilted edges.
The sun is medallion like
When viewed closely the female figure’s gown has a feather-like appearance.
Each piece of the background has it’s own rocky landscape texture.
The only piece of the background without a winding landscape is the sun.
The pieces all have their own boundary lines, their own existence apart from the rest. Each piece has it’s own colour. The textures are similar but no two are an exact match. These puzzle-like pieces symbolize difficulties, stops and obstacles that we face on different roads in our life. However, when all the pieces are put together and the flaws of our existence overlooked the view can be bright and beautiful. Hope is absolutely always on the horizon. Let yourself shine with it.
For a short time greeting cards of the above painting are available at my Redbubble gallery.
Depending on my mood my paintings can take a drastic change from very earthy colours to bright and vivid then flair with colours from the sea and sky. The second image shown is "Africa Shines" and the third is titled "Above The Sunflower So High."
