additional exercise using all colours above
entirely painted with guidance


this seems to be on the same theme as the previous two paintings in the colours
n.3 respect God, all things speak for God, peaks again, in Winsor Red Deep, which symbolizes victory, in particular football, but also heart in crochet, and generally red is seen as love, with St Valentine coming up
God’s loving light perhaps shining out in red, rays of red
n.7 work carefully, in Phthalo Turquoise, to me representing disbelief
and mountains again, moving mountains, mountains don’t move, but God can move them, only God can
perhaps shining a light on the transformation which occurs between my honest effort to represent one thing truthfully and the image becoming something else even more truthful perhaps
n.9 speak the truth, both peaks and truth again, speaking can be gold or yellowed as this is in Raw Sienna to me representing religion, framework, structure
perhaps here the yellow is the structure, the mountain, with the light and shadow being thrown on it by love and disbelief, red and turquoise
helping perhaps to show the structure, a bit like the Rosetta stone helped with translation by showing two different alternatives,
as here are shown the opposites of love and disbelief perhaps
the mountains are yellow, with dark shadows
the light shining on them is red perhaps
