Rebirth

Rebirth

Shows the spirit of Spring and new life arising from the ground. She has a bird's nest on her head and she awakens the whole earth to a new birth.

Medium: Mische technique (oil and egg tempera)

Hand-embellished giclee on canvas of painting 36" x 19": £550

The Rod

This was painted before the war in Kuwait. Artists sometimes foretell events without realising it.
The Rod is a symbol of a spiritual connection that we can hold on to in spite of terrible situations in the world. The desert represents the world as it can be — a place without water, which is the symbol of truth. Above, in the sun, there is a place representing an ocean of truth.

Available as a limited edition giclée print at wire-frame fine art.

This was painted after I was told I would lose my sight in a few years. For two years I lived under that threat, and I painted this picture in great fear, but the diagnosis proved incorrect, and I can still see twenty years later.
