Artwork #1

A number of you have asked if I would expand my blog to share some of my artwork. Well, why not? I am not that shy, am I?

I do not pretend to have any skill as an artist, it is a mere hobby, if that, and certainly cannot begin to compare to some of the glorious pieces I have seen from others on WP – even calling me an amateur would make my day!

Today, I am sharing a painting I created a couple years ago. The medium is acrylic on canvas.

Can anyone think of a suitable name to christen it with?


This is a scheduled post as I am currently Out of Office and will return part-way through August. I will be travelling to some remote places, so finding an internet connection may be difficult. Although I may not reply to your comments immediately, please know that I value and appreciate every one of them, andΒ look forward to reading and replying on my return.

    1. You are so kind. Thank you. I only dabble with a paintbrush really 😁 but dabbling is fun, so I imagine I will continue to pull the palette out from time to time πŸ™‚

      1. You are so kind. I agree, there is something special about art that moved the artist and the people who see it. I do enjoy playing with a fresh canvas.

      1. Thank you. The colours depict the mindset of the artist wherein it seems that it was the inner dialogue that was outlined on a canvas.
        The crest and trough, and the wave like pattern further resembles a human subconscious.
        Due to the aforesaid, I thought that title “the monologue” suited it.

      2. Sorry it has taken me a while to reply, as you may have known I was camping in the wilderness of Southern Africa for the last month, so I did not have internet. This is actually something my dad says occasionally that has stuck with me. The childish simplicity of it makes we smile πŸ™‚ Hope you are well and have enjoyed life since I have been away πŸ™‚

      3. The trip was incredible. We camped with native tribes people who spoke the native click language. We even engaged them in football, which was surreal, as they were all running around in animal skins with bows and arrows on their back. We also saw the big five, and some of them kept us awake at night coming far to close to the tents for comfort! It was an incredible month. I hope you have had a good month too and lots of wonderful things have happened for you!

      4. That sounds intriguing. Must be an experience of a lifetime.
        Haha, no, the month wasn’t as surreal as this, with the big five keeping you awake at night.
        But yes, survived the corporate office by another day.

      5. The corporate office can be one of the more deadly places on the planet though, so I have come to understand! Sounds a difficult job.


      6. We all do something to maintain our former selves when faced with the monotony of working life. I imagine, the more creative you are more successful these ‘escape mechanisms’ are. I write or scaffold imaginary scenarios around my workplace. It helps to uplift me and to curtain reality a little πŸ˜†πŸ˜‹

  1. i’ve tried painting with acrylic my work looked like a 3rd grader forced to join art class…… i was disappointed, this work looks awesome, if i could name it, it would be called A Leap through Time…. looks kinda like sci-fi worm holes for time travel so … πŸ˜€

  2. I’d have to call this one “Migraine” because it looks like the ocular early warnings I get before my thankfully infrequent migraines while also managing to convey the pain and dizziness that accompany the eventual debilitating headache.

    1. You have to deal with migraines too, I am so sorry. They are hateful things. But what you say is very true. I do not think anyone can really explain what having a migraine is like to someone who has never suffered one, now you mention it, this picture does come pretty close as a representation of the feelings and distortions. Thanks so much for your comment πŸ™‚
