In earlier posts I’ve mentioned that The Artist has a habit of chucking his paintings in the bin or ~ better still ~ burning them, (unless I get there in time snatch them from the flame!)
Many moons ago, he painted this picture at the end of a somewhat volatile relationship, (could you guess?) So, when he met me, he decided to destroy it. But I loved it, instantly ~ and couldn’t allow that to happen, so I found a suitable frame and hung it on the living room wall.
The light shining at the window guides the eye towards the source of warmth and comfort, and shelter from the ravages of the storm. It came to symbolise the way we felt, coming home to our own cosy cottage.
VOS # 15 THE HAVEN
This old-school painting is on paper and rendered in watercolour and waterproof ink, using masking fluid to create the forks of lightning.
Many have requested copies, (including the girl at the printers!) ~ so clearly the image strikes a universal chord!
