Silent sailing

image

Life is but a boat sailing in a dream. In this piece depicts the calm waters. In silence it drifts, floating, waiting for opportunity to dock. Its presence filtering in from a white light in misted surroundings; like the void of resurrection, the boat is your soul. I dreamt of this painting, a prominent textured and thick bodied paint. I don’t know what it means, but I rarely paint the paintings in my sleep and I felt some spiritualistic connection. A reflection, perhaps.

Two illustrations that I produced for my Nan and Mum this Mothering Sunday. Both of bouquets, equally pretty. Not a style of work I normally do, but its quick and gets the job done, and can apply to my drawing side more adaptively than my painting. I do like my watercolours and they’re pleasantly calming when I don’t have deadlines to work to! Anyway I hope my mum likes her picture and enjoys her relaxing Sunday.
