A New Painting – Winged Wonders

Collage

Almost all of the care I received from nurses during my hospital stays this past year went above and beyond. I am SO grateful for their time, their care and their expertise. While in hospital I created the small sketch pictured below – it was inspired by all the nurses running to and fro to care for those in need. I called the sketch, ‘Winged Wonders’. I knew that once I was healthy again I’d paint this sketch as an expression of my gratitude. Obviously I’ll never be able to find the particular individuals who directly cared for me but I do hope that the meaning of this piece warms the heart of every nurse who gets a chance to know it. And maybe they’ll feel just a little bit honoured.

It’s funny because most of the pieces I have created in the past year have been commissions and now when it finally came time to paint something that was exclusively my idea it was REALLY hard to do! I know right?!? You’d think I’d fly through it but, OH NO, I struggled all the way! <Rolling my eyes at myself>

It wasn’t until this point that I finally felt like I was finally finding my way but even then I had to push to finish.

Despite my fight to the finish I’m happy with all colours and movement. Part of me wishes some of the airy softness of the sketch had stuck a bit more but sometimes paintings travel their own journey and they can end up in quite a different place from where they began. <grin and shrug>

Anyways…
I hope you enjoyed seeing the process. 🙂

Have an amazing weekend friends!!!
