The Eye Of The Storm
Today on my other blog I am talking about compassion for others. To be compassionate we need to be able to see past ourselves and have some empathy.
This painting was painted at a time of deep inward looking on my own part. Caught up in what was happening to my self and my at. It was during the time of the pain caused by my accident. That is no excuse for inward self indulgence.
I decided to try and vent this through a painting and this was the end result. It is not at all surprising that this now lies in a corner facing the wall. It will not sell and it cannot be painted over, there is far too much texture on it.
One day I will dispose of it. But it is a good reminder that if we become tight and inward looking then our painting can also become tight and indulgent.
It was painted using acrylic and sand. I called it the eye of the storm, I could just as easily have called it contemplation of the naval.
I can look back on it now and smile and the day after a good fathers day is the best time ever to laugh at oneself.
Sorry for today indulgence and thank you all again fro following and sticking with me.
