Textured painting – Coming from darkness

This I did a while back, it’s one of my favourite pieces. It has a lot of meaning for me and the fact that it is a texture piece makes me like it even more. I love touching my work, feeling it emotionally and physically. I was in a very dark place when I started this, I was seeing a shrink, doing the whole depressive thing… My Doc suggested that I start being creative again, working slowly and putting all my emotions into what I do.

This painting started out as a black pit, as I started feeling lighter the colours became lighter. My life went from dark to light, this painting took me over a month, as it was a creative healing process.

When I look at this I feel joy, I feel myself going through the healing process.

This painting was created using texture paste… you create with the paste, leave it to dry…. and paint over the dried paste.
