acrylic on canvas

photographing this painting was a pain in that the light was bouncing off it and never caught much of the lovely colours and forms, but enough whinging – here is a shaman on an incredible journey, an attempt to capture an intense dream.

And for those with ears to hear, it is the spirit of john the baptist, making straight the way

    Another breathtaker Matthew! Your style of painting really captures the fluidity and essence of the everchanging energies of life. As well as there being ‘hidden’ shapes and presences open for interpretation by the eye of the beholder. The vision and colour is most vibrant – an explosion and celebration of your God-given gifts. You really are a very gifted storyteller with your images.
