Golden, My Painting
This is a painting of Beth and was a positive creation from start to finish!
Becoming Bethany’s Mother was neither planned nor expected but it was without a doubt a great blessing.
Since she was born she has been my light in dark places, she helps me to see where I need to go. Thus, I used gold skeleton leaves for the background to add texture and reflect light. I think it also adds an ethereal feel to the painting.
Beth chose the colours; I think she had Christmas in mind! The dove is a wink in the direction of ‘The Purple Lady’.
By the time of painting this I had completely left my old life behind. The most important thing was and always had been Beth and she was with me every single day. This painting represents joy, release and once again, freedom.
