Arise My Soul
Original Swallows mixed media art on reclaimed wood
This painting was created using acrylics, watercolours and inks on wood, sanded but texture still remaining. A light coat of satin varnish to protect it. It has a mystical fantasy feel about it.
A sailor would have one swallow tattooed before setting out on a journey, and the second swallow tattooed at the end of their tour of duty, upon return to their home port. It is also said that if the sailor drowns, the swallows will carry their soul to heaven.
The swallow also represents love, care and affection towards family and friends, showing the loyalty of the person always returning to them. The bird also represents freedom and hope.
measurements are 14.5cm x 60cm approx.
Colours may appear slightly different on your monitor.

I have been creative all my life and I’m always experiementing in new techniques and materials. I love to create with watercolours, acrylics and digitally it just depends how I’m feeling and how I visualise an idea which medium I will use. Many of my creations can be mixed-media too, using paints, inks, collage etc. but then these could also be completed digitally. I just love to create.
