OIL PAINTING

Many of my paintings are about the psychological torture I have had to endure for years because of politics…

The original title was:
BLACK LADY CHAIN SMOKING, DRINKING, AND WEARING A GLOW IN THE DARK SPARKLE RING

I had to shorten the title for the print, so I changed the title to:
WINDMILL OF POLITICAL HATE

This is about being forced to go in endless vicious circles in regard to your sexuality, your relationships, your jobs, your health, and everything else in your life pretty much. The cigarettes and alcohol represent sexual relationships, which you can’t do without very well because of your political status and the fact that you are not allowed to move forward on your own. The black lady represents slavery, for she being kept powerless in the system. And the glow in the dark sparkle ring represents the infection in your body, (ovary), which has been intentionally left there to fester and torment you, as a means of torture. And the only relief you are offered from this is through sexual relationships with men, because they refuse to give you health care on your own.

THEIR WINDMILL

their windmill…

I am not healthy
I am not wealthy
I am not in control
I am not reaching any goal
I try and try and try in vain
But all I’m left with is never-ending pain
I go in circles that are drawn for me
With no ability to break the cycle
Their windmill that tortures me endlessly, see
All the disrespect, referring to my attempts as ‘riding a bicycle’
I hope they are happy that I am crying
This is of their making, that I am dying

Description –
This is about being made to go in circles, and about words of hate and disrespect that spur a vicious cycle like a huge hateful windmill that is spinning out of control. Their windmill leaves its victim in a sad, dead neverending spin that is spiraling out of control to nowhere. It is actually a very famous and well known windmill, it is the windmill of political hate.

I have a deep love for expressionism – ‘Expressionistic artist sought to develop pictorial forms which would express their innermost feelings rather than represent the external world. Expressionist painting is intense, passionate and highly personal, based on the concept of the painter’s canvas as a vehicle for demonstrating emotions. Violent, unreal color and dramatic brushwork make the typical expressionistic painting quiver with vitality.’ This is what I try to achieve when I paint.

    very enigmatic lady

    JaneAParis replied:
    Thank you Aurora, it is easy to become an enigma when nothing works for you – the system does not work for me – I have been told that over and over. I get run over no matter what I do, after awhile you just get extremely tired and go sit in the middle of the road and wait for the next car. Smiles from Jane:-)

    Thanks Neil, pats on the back are great, well you know what I mean. I have a terrible sense of humor, it gets me in a lot of trouble. Smiles from Jane:-)

    Comment from rightasrain:
    Keeping loving your own sense of humour. Mine can get quite macabre. I inherited it off my Dutch heritage ;) thank god though…where would I be without it esp since some people i live with can be so dour. So keep smiling on the inside because of who you are – even if it doesn’t always show on the outside. Yep, women are quite amazing :) All the best ♥ ♥
