Before the Storm
I love metaphorical paintings. This work is representative of the human condition, and we can each find a time when there is a place of peace within ourselves while the storm rages and blows around us.
The approaching storm can be seen in the sky and trees to the left of the pine tree. The centre of the pine clear, the sky is blue and there is hope.
This work was painted with three concentric circles in the upper half and there is a big circular path around the rocks. The rocks are aligned like an arrowhead, pointing towards the focal area in the centre of the wind blown pine tree.
This work began after as sketching trip to the Bowen Farm, north of the lake where I live.
