This painting started differently than any of the other pieces. I began with a palette knife. I kept wanting to do circles and so the initial idea was round and confusing.
The very first thing I noticed was the face of a sweet young boy and it reminded me of another painting I had done called Oh Australia.(see at the bottom of the blast) He was back and holding something again.
For a day I literally went round and round trying to find the answer to what I call the "Puzzle in my Paintings" or the message in the murky mess and madness.
At first I painted the planet earth and America but it just did not resonate with me.
Finally out of frustration I painted the whole circle out and started all over leaving only the face that I loved and the angels all around the earth
I splattered paint and suddenly the truth was revealed. This child was holding a Koala Bear and it was the same precious boy come to visit me again. This time he was not pleading for Australia (I painted the first piece during the massive fires in that country) He was pleading for the world and the words that popped out were...
PLEASE LOVE ONE ANOTHER
They are whispered in the painting and hopefully all around the world.
I know I have found the truth in these pieces when I start weeping over my desk and this one brought me to tears the minute he spoke up.
Everyday we hear more and more difficult news from around the world and we feel helpless in this Twilight Zone Time.
Yet spring flowers are everywhere and there is plenty of food and the air is clean and the sky is so blue. I know this Little Prince like character speaks for the Angels all around and on his body.
WE WILL RISE AGAIN
PS. On the bottom of the painting the angels formed letters(which I did not do on purpose) and I finally figured it out...
NUIT which is the Egypt Goddess of the Night. We are in the Dark right now but light is just around the corner so HOLD ON.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
