Heart Dancer

Heart Dancer

The cave paintings continue


Heart Dancer is the title of this piece.

Why you may wonder did I call this painting Heart Dancer? Well as I was working on it – I suddenly realised that the opening of this cave is shaped like a heart and not only that I saw and enhanced the potentiality of the woman’s torso that appears here. There seems to me, to be a rythm and a beauty here that embodies the woman’s essence of creative protection and nurturing.  There is a warm flow of energy within the subject that I wanted to capture and bring to the viewer.

Into The Light

Into The Light – A work that puts one into a new perspective.

This painting has I feel, a sense of grand scale in it, as the tiny figure forges her way into the shining light.

I love the way it shows the trials she has passed through and her determination in reaching her goal, even though she is completely overwhelmed by her environment.

Another painting from this period is ‘Satin Sands’.  As you work through a series of paintings there are always some that the artist feel are more successful than others and this may be for very different reasons.  For example if you are trying to develop your fingerprint there are certain criteria that need to be included in each work.  The overall work may look OK and appeal to some people, however, as in this one, it doesn’t quite include all my fingerprint qualities and therefore I might not consider it to be as successful as one that does.

What drew me to paint this was the way the aerial view of sands and water looked just like satin fabric.
