"Vision" Story behind the artwork...

"Vision" 2018

This painting, "Vision", represents imagination, creativity, perception and inspiration. The pastel shades and misty tones create a dream-like quality to the artwork, and it could appear that the horses are running on top of clouds. The white horses are strong and beautiful, and are running with purpose.

I wanted to create a painting that would capture the way I imagine heaven to be, something that would show more than the reality of the world we live in. The definition of vision is defined as:

1. the faculty or state of being able to see. - synonyms: eyesight, sight, power of sight, faculty of sight, ability to see, power of seeing, powers of observation, observation, perception, visual perception; More 2. The ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom. - synonyms :imagination, creativity, creative power, inventiveness, innovation, inspiration, intuition, perceptiveness, perception, breadth of view, foresight, insight, far-sightedness, prescience, discernment, awareness, penetration, shrewdness, sharpness, cleverness"his conference speech was a little lacking in vision"

I believe that this painting represents all these words combined, and even without the deeper meaning, it is a beautiful, delicate painting, which would be especially fitting for a bedroom, but would in look great in any room. I recommend hanging this painting on a clean white wall in natural light, to allow the subtle colours to come through and the silver to catch the light.

If you feel this is the painting for you, please contact me via my website or through social media. I am happy to send along extra photographs and more details if needed.

Thanks for reading,
