Three Tears Before Moving On

November 20, 2012

Three tear for my absent friends


I feel my time of reflection is nearing an end, its been like travelling in a circle which is now complete and I can now start to move on. I’ve reached many conclusions and given myself enough room (metaphorically speaking) to create my art as freely as I choose and changed my goals and expectations. The vain ambitions that I set out with many moons ago lie redundant along with the insecure needs for recognition and acceptance. Now I will follow my heart and my instincts to produce work in as open, honest and true a way as I can, simply to produce art for arts sake. It would be wrong for me not see through my artistic visions that I have carried all my life, and wether or not it is accepted by many or a few really doesn’t matter.

So this year I have made the choice and taken that courageous step into a new and more open creative area and have loved every minute of it. I have learnt so much and travelled so far with my work, further than I ever imagined and that experience just opens up countless possibilities.
Life is so good when you really try to live it. ;))

Of late I have been making frequent visits to the graves of my two sisters Wendy (1961-92), Amanda (1959-2002) and my Mother who outlived both her daughters before dying of a broken heart in 2004. Facing up to the realities of my existence is hard as I look at the three graves  side by side whilst standing over their mortal remains. In a way I like to feel my work is a tribute to my family who supported me through some hard times and gave me the strength and belief to become a successful artist in the truest sense.

Life is a precious gift
