Mother and child, yellow dress (Pledge)
Artist Statement: In times of darkness and fear which our new norm presents…. The like of which we all thought was relegated to the past, good art has the power to not only lift the spirit, it can also calm the soul. Art, whether music, sculpture or paint can bring calmness and tranquillity in the most challenging of environments.
My art is made with this in mind, to lift the spirit - John Maitland.
Medium: Acrylic oil on board
Dimensions: 120 x 58 cms
