Time is a great healer but you will always miss them, but then that’s how its supposed to be and they wouldn’t have meant anything if you didn’t.
I cant believe its 15 years since my brother left this earth, and I still find it difficult to do an actual painting of him rather than just his light, but then I know once our form has dissolved the spirit goes on.
This was a photo of Zac and his girlfriend Trine, which I then changed around on photoshop.
I did this to represent his absence, thinking of it afterwards though, I realise it represents his spirit.
Most of my art ideas are not mine, they often come to me from a higher place.
Acrylic on canvas 46cm x 60cm and a short poem I made up.
Part of the climate change series I have been doing lately.
Even though these paintings may have beautiful colours in them, there is a darker subject underneath.
I don’t look at this as depressing though as the more we bring attention to it, the more light and positive action can go into it.
My inspiration for this was a solo show Thom Yorke played a few years back. I could see all these colours and energy way over the stage , and it wasn’t the stage lights, it was broad daylight as well. I was on a high for 2 to 3 weeks at least afterwards, it was just a pure energy of golden light and flecks of blue.
Its quite hard to represent in a painting as it is a pretty much an intangible thing anyway, it was defiantly an ethereal energy rather than worldly.
I know he has his own talent but i also think he manages to tap into this divine creative source or just in tune with it really, I wonder if he is aware of it.
It was like he was being fed this light and energy from miles above him.
I was totally transfixed and dumbstruck, it was like time stopped still.
Oh, and I wasn`t on drugs either 🙂
Anyway, I felt I wanted to put up this painting now, as I have felt this energy around me for more than the past month and I don’t think its going away, I have so much creative energy flowing through me I haven’t manged to put a lot of paintings up yet.
I may have had the odd day when I can`t think of anything to paint, but I just do something anyway and it helps to push through any blocks.
Perhaps I have finally lost it 😉 but if I have, its a much nicer world to be in and one that’s much easier to understand.
We are not in this world for very long, so we may as well put as much beauty into it as we can to the best of our abilities.
