This is a Mixed Media acrylic on canvas size 101cm x 101cm, impasto, tissue and gold leaf.
This was painted from a dream I had.
In the dream I was flying with our son Adam who passed over 13 years ago, we were both so happy free and loving, it felt really wonderful, so I have tried to capture some of that feeling. The angel in the background is Adam with his wings and guitar, as he use to sing, write music and acted and he performed in Fiddler on the Roof in Tamworth, he played Perchek, he was very good and had a marvellous voice. Seeing this show all about family tradition and love of God, I felt it was art imitating his life, because he was quite rebellious. I had quite a few tears watching him perform but was also SO Proud of him.
Another performance he did was to play Frankenfurtur and performed the song ‘Sweet Transvestite’ he brought the house down, and you should have seen the ladies faces as he pranced around in a black suspenders and garters with black fishnet stockings and boots, it was a sight to behold, he was quite handsome, it was adorable.I will load up some photos and put them in my journal, if anyone would like to have a look.
