is a collection of oils executed in the grisaille style. The underlying trend of the images shows a disasterous backdrop and a girl representing hope, future and freedom.
There are analogous elements to each painting holding on to a specific event in the past and a carefree release of the protagonist in each.
This collection is one of looking forward to a brighter future than the devastation of the past.
They are my visions of hope.
As with all of my paintings, I name them after a piece of music which has some meaning to me when viewed with the artwork.
" is a work by All About Eve and comes from their eponymous 1988 album, it was released as a single in the UK in the same year reaching No. 30 in the UK chart.(The collection currently stands at 3 completed paintings as of Feb 2012, I envisage a total collection of 7 when completed)
