mostly acrylic but with oil accents to help provide texture and highlight...thin board canvas.


Do you know that feeling you get when you walk in the sun after the winter has been so cold for so long?; That feeling when the sunlight caresses your face so delicately and sweetly that you swear it was nature itself kissing you to let you know you are an important part of it?; Or perhaps you know the feeling when you drop your kids off at school or finally kick off your shoes after a long day at work and you get five minutes peace to yourself before life's inevitable to-do list looms upon you...a walk in the park on a nice day just because...your favourite song coming on the radio and you dropping all that you were doing to sway around to it...a moment of peace to yourself that is both selfish and selfless at the same time. Void of guilt, void of chore, void of complexity. Just you, the sun, the breeze and the warmth you feel all over.
This piece was created to celebrate that feeling for in this busy rushrushrush, supply and demand, subserviant, people pleasing, tech age, we often forget to stop and smell the roses...to feel the wind in our hair, to feel the sun on our skin and to dance by ourselves...to just 'be'.
I created this artwork to remind people to be kind to themselves and to relish in those moments, be they tiny or few, and to enjoy life for its simplicity as well as its complexity...and to dance in the wind and the sun.
