If you had to capture your top 30 emotions from the key moments of your life journey so far, and then you had to give each emotion a colour, or a blend of colours, and then put them down on paper…..or canvas….. what would it look like?
Would you have mostly earth-toned colours? Would you think of water, fire or air? Perhaps you would select bright colours for joyous moments and dark colours for pain and suffering? Or perhaps just a blob of whatever colour comes out… because after all… life is mostly messy right?
I smile in wonder when I look at this piece. I smile because of the vibrant selection of colour and how it makes me feel. I smile at the satisfaction of the simplicity of the perfect lines and compartments. I smile at the deceptive complexity of what’s going in within each of those compartments, hinting at the fact that not everything is always what it seems. A bit like life.
I smile because I saw Terence painting this piece, so I know something that you don’t. The tiny painstaking brush strokes; the emotion of the artist poured into creating a small piece that evokes such big emotion from the viewer; the hours and hours and hours of painting time; the layers and layers and layers of oil paint left to dry before applying more……… so much to smile about.
Look closely and you might see images like a coral reef, deep sea waters, the movement of the blood, planets, a face or two, an amoeba……or a storm brewing….?
Whatever you see……. this piece is guaranteed to make you smile, just as I do.
Which parts of this piece resonate with you the most?
