Hopes And Dreams

Size: 76 × 61 cm


I love to be able to create scenes that are not only nice to look at, and hopefully thought of as well painted, but also that they conjure up in the mind’s eye other more significant matters. This one makes me feel like our hopes and dreams are limitless.

They maybe of a memory that plays an important part in a moment of your own life or you see a quality that the characters in the scene that reminds you of the type of personality of someone you know or have known.

Maybe they take on a deeper significance in that you see that the things painted have another meaning like who the father or the child is and could the bike be a metaphor for the life journey and experience they both are on and could the balloons signify something else like our hopes, dreams, values and aspirations that surround us as we let a parent lead us so far on that journey and then as the road comes to the end for them will we still have hold of such things or are they let go.

However you look at a piece of my art my wish is that it conveys and stirs within your soul a feeling of happiness, peace and contentment.
