When I painted this picture, I looked at the paper and had this concept of a flower riding the waves. An emotion which I started working into the paper. That's how I usually paint. Propelled by an urge. Not a lot of planning goes into my paintings.
I also don't really have a story in mind before I paint the picture. The story usually happens after I complete the painting. I'll look at the work, and it will elicit the story. Today, when I looked at "The Struggle of Beauty" here is what she had to say.
Recently I watched a documentary about Tim Ballard.
In this blog, I want to dedicate this image to Tim. I no longer have the original painting, but if I did I would send it to him. He is a for real Angel for Lost and Unloved Children.
Regarding the original painting, it is 22 x 30 inches, watercolor on rag paper. It was sold from the Gaslite Gallery (Used to be in Gastown)
The owner of the painting let me know that he hung it in the company of his original by Salvador Dali. Quite a compliment!
I would really appreciate it if you could share this blog using the share buttons below, and if you could make a comment in the comment section I will send you a free 8x10 inch printable file of this great painting!
Read the story behind the painting "“Metamorphosis” by Canadian Artist Kathy Poitras
A burst of emotion, straight from my passionate heart onto the paper. I am extremely delighted with the cocoon, which is made of pearl paint and acrylic.
