Nothing Stays the Same

Painting flowers over the last few years has taught me that flowers are ever changing. From the bud stage to when they are wilting, each stage is so beautiful. The same could be said of life.

Seaweed


“A fragrant breeze wandered up from the quiet sea, trailed along the beach, and drifted back to the sea again, wondering where to go next. On a mad impulse it went up to the beach again. It drifted back to sea.”
Douglas Adams, The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide : Five Complete Novels and One Story

A Mothers Day Bouquet

My son bought me this bunch of flowers, a perfect opportunity to get back into painting after nearly a week off.

Windswept

Sometimes life has a way of pulling you into directions that normally you would not have dreamed of.

Light II

I'm going more with my feelings and this is helping me be more and more abstract.

Space

That short space of time when you just wake up and everything is alright with the world, and then you fully wake up.

Spirit V

A rose representing life, part returns to earth and part travels onto the next life. 

I've been listening to Sade most of my adult life, love her songs.

Spirit IV

We have beautiful sunshine with blue skies today, but its cold and windy, well we can't have everything right??

Here's a better photo from last night. Still not abstract enough so I may keep going, but loving the experiment.

Spirit IV

I have realised its harder to let go of the real and recognisable than I thought it would be. I ran out of daylight so a better photo tomorrow, all being well.

Spirit II and III


I thought I'd try an experiment to  turn a realist  painting into an abstract. So far they still look like roses, lets see what the next one looks like.


I've been listening to Elvis a pocketful of rainbows, where would we be without music!

Spirit

I went out and bought roses for the first time since Pisho, I feel her everywhere, her spirit is with  me.

I've been listening to this beautiful song by James Bay.
