As those who read my linked blog will know, today I was talking about determination. To have any determination we need to have an accompanying dream. I was brought up as a child to know my place. My mother did not intend to put me down; she just believed that we all had our place in life. I was born into a poor family, financially, not in the wealth of knowledge and caring that I got from my father. My mother would always be telling me to stop dreaming and realise who I was. My father, on the other hand, would take me aside and tell me to dream dreams.
This painting for me is a painting about such dreams. When I look at it, it reminds me of those words of his, to dream dreams. It speaks to me of places to see and things to achieve. It speaks of the hopes of my inner me.
Strangely I have two very similar paintings. I was asked to do another for somebody else. Their circumstances changed and they no longer had a place for it. So I have one that never sold and one that never will because it will stay on my living room wall.
Apologies again for my absence, I had intended to post but could not get internet very easily where I was.
I hope you all have a wonderful day when another dream comes true.
