Rain- Mother of Life by graemeb Rain- Mother of Life by graemeb
Oil on canvas about 1200mm x 1100mm
This is also about the drought, the end of it hopefully. It is when the rain comes back and brings life with it, the eggs represent capsules of life being brought back by mother nature and the kingfisher as how we live from water.
This is another painting of Amy as also in the Siren

You have many beautiful paintings in your gallery,
I see in your works some drivers that are also mine first of all light, but also women figures as force of nature

Beautiful work and thoughts behind it. My favourite part is how her expression shows in the face and how the light falls. It's very interesting and original.

Hi Zindy, sorry for the delay I have a big commission on and no time to do anything and now I am late starting my portraits for some big exhibitions I normally enter, I think they call it the ripple effect.
Thanks this is one of my favourite paintings, seems like I painted it so long ago.

You have a really great grasp of color... something it seems a lot of painters these days have issues with. Lovely flow to this piece and symbology as well- thanks for sharing! :)
