Painting from the soul

This was the first oil I attempted after being ill. It started with two dried rose buds. Thats probably just how I felt! It was a painting that evolved and developed as it went along, nothing was set up, it sort of came from within, and this is the result.

You have been included on my tag list - please forgive me, but you don't have to do anything if you don't want to.

Oh Carol, so sorry to hear you have been ill, hope you are feeling better now! Wow, is this a breakthrough painting for you? Have you ever painted like this before? I love it, have you thought about the significance of the swan? I have a book, Painting from the Soul, by Aviva Gold - you would find this book very interesting, you are very welcome to borrow it.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments!!! No Di, I have no idea what the significance of a swan is, it just happened. A candle turned into a swan. I would love to borrow your book, sounds fascinating.

Slangkop Lighthouse, Kommetjie

SOLD Slangkop lighthouse is the tallest iron tower on the South African Coast and sits at the one end of Kommetjie. It measures 100 feet from base to the balcony and has been operational since 1919. Every lighthouse has a different frequency of flashes and this one emits four flashes every 30 seconds as it turns and can be seen for 33 sea miles. Here is an oil painting of the lighthouse from a photograph Bryan took. I would like to do a watercolour of it sometime soon.
