"Rise above"

2011 December 30

"Rise above" Stormie Mills. Acrylic, spray paint, dirt, graffiti remover & oil on canvas. H1010mm x 1520mm. December 2011. Initially titled "dark thoughts" i began in the process of painting to write down some of the lines of internal dialog i can have whilst painting, an invoice that i often wrestle with as i wrestle with the painting itself. It's not there to draw sympathy but rather to highlight a tenacity, a strength it's an important part of the process of painting as the layers are built upon is for me a great dialogue that resolves these thoughts turning them from dark to fuel to a work that is at peace with itself.
