Together we are Stronger

Small Art Works Online Release
December 3rd - 31st, 2021

The Release

Together we are Stronger is a series of 12 pieces of 12” x 12” Original Oil on canvas, painted during the pandemic.   Each piece is individually painted, connecting  one to another, much like a jigsaw puzzle.  Symbolically they are holding hands staying connected to the Vine.  These 12 pieces connect to form a larger piece of 4 ft x 3 ft.  The number twelve signifies perfection of rule and it also means authority and completeness.  This is the the first ever online release of its kind from my studio.  The colour palette of this series is vivid and bright which captures the essence of light streaming from the garden of my heart to yours.

The Inspiration 

This series was birthed out of my daily devotional moments in my living room upstairs.  Growing over the fence were the delicate blooms of Rangoon Vines hanging over the wall greeting me “Good morning” almost every day.  As I sit and watch the sun rise with the light catching the leaves and petals in my hours of reading, meditating and contemplating during the lockdown period in 2020.  These beautiful blooms has inspired me  to paint them on the canvas in a contemporary impressionist style.

 The Message

  The message that spoke so clearly to me is that we are like these blooms…small and seemingly insignificant clinging on to the vines for support. No matter what situation we have been placed in, no matter what circumstances inside or outside of us that seem to overcrowd our minds,  all the negativity around the pandemic  can either cause us to cave in or challenge us to rise above.  Deep inside us we have what it takes to overcome. We are rooted in strength and courage.  The good soil that our roots are planted in will enable us to grow towards the light that keeps shining every day.  We are not meant to live in isolation and there is a strong wall of community which we can lean upon.  

This is how Together we are Stronger has been birthed.    

- People are like vines. We are born and we grow. Like vines, people also need a tree to cling to, to give them support-
