The images depicted stories and legends from their religion. A lot of them showed aerial views of rivers, lakes, people sitting around campfires and many forms of animals. Rather like looking at a map.
Well, I thought It would be a good idea to, very loosely, base the next theme for my work on dot paintings.
My first piece, ‘The Balance of Life’, shows the Tree of life standing proud in the middle of the picture. On either side of the tree are two campfires, with people surrounding each one. They represent community spirit and the unity of humankind. The tree provides them with shade and sustenance. The stars up above represent the elders and loved ones, who have moved on, but are still keeping a watchful eye on them. Everything is in harmony, perfectly balanced.
Due to problems uploading the picture, I cannot show it here, but you can view it on my Facebook album page.This painting will be up for sale soon. Watch this space!!!
See you later :) :)
