I Do Art Discussion No. 9 – “My Melbourne”

Painting No. 44 – Title “My Melbourne” Story:   This Painting was inspired by a series of photos I had taken in June 2009 consisting of different buildings/locations within the city of Melbourne (Australia). I was so inspired by the colour and architectural contrasts Melbourne shows off! After living in Melbourne now for over 40 years, the development of Melbourne has been amazing. Melbourne – Australia has so much to offer and very easy to get around to see. Each time I go into the city of Melbourne I find it has something new to share!

Below is a photo showing how I used blue tape to assist with my arts practise.  It takes many months to complete one abstract painting such as this painting.  Each colour I leave to dry thoroughly before commencing on with the next.  I apply three layers of acrylic paint to give the colour a rich look!

I guess this painting really was/is about the love I have for Melbourne – my home, where I fell in love with a dear and great human being, married that person and now my husband for over 30 plus years; had two children, one daughter whom we cherish and my son, who so sadly was killed in a single vehicle crash in 2009.  His loss broke our hearts.  Melbourne holds many, many memories that are dear to me and this painting is a tribute to the joys I have experienced whilst living here…
