Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.
This work will be on show at the Dunedin Arts Festival 5th october 19th at the community art gallery.
Work inspired by Ruth Arnison's poem 'If I take wings of the morning' for the 'A palette of poetry exhibition, October 5 - 19 2014.
This painting's genesis began while walking my dog along Allan's beach on the Otago Peninsula NZ, contemplating Ruth's poem. The wild stormy scene perfectly matched the emotions I wanted to capture in paint. The deep feelings of loss engendered from a son killed tragically in war, yet whose memories still exist. Deep in contemplation, I glimpsed a pale rainbow through the sea mist, arcing above the foaming rough seas, which splashed white against the darkening sky. It was then that I was reminded of the line in the poem 'stained glass his memorial, stains forever on her heart.'
Lest we forget.
