Wedding Rose painting

Wedding Rose

Painted for my son and his wife for their wedding stationary. I cut out the rose using photoshop and used it in various designs throughout the range of stationary for their wedding on 8th August 2009. And a wonderful day was had by all!

Acrylic on Canvas, 120cm x 120cm

From my ‘Pain’ series 

Arthritic pain has affected me for most of my life – like a living being crawling over my bones and tissues, invading my body, throwing out it’s tentacles to envelop me. This particular nasty creature lives over my upper spine and affects my upper back, neck, shoulders, arms and hands.

 

In ‘Bitter Acid’ I have portrayed how I perceive this creature and the pain and difficulty he causes. The gold and red depict me, my flesh and the pain I am in. I am covered with this acidic creature and caught in its painful net.

 

This is one of a series of four paintings using colour and abstraction to portray how I perceive my pain and it has proved to be very cathartic to spend time analysing pain and transforming it into paint.

Acrylic and Ink on paper, 18″ x 18″

The inspiration for this series are how feelings and emotions are perceived. As a fibromyalgia and arthritis sufferer for over 25 years I hope to portray what it’s like living with chronic pain and exhaustion. Here hidden and visible layers represent how I felt at the time of working.

Inspired by colour, texture and abstraction I am exploring my perception of personal issues and people close to me.
