Painting - Oil On Canvas.
When I paint for others, I try to reflect something that reflects the life of the person or people. The couple that requested this commission live in more than one world; they are extremely busy but when they can, they will have as much calm time as possible.
Here we see a sunrise over a choppy sea, but the waves stop at an archway and within that archway the environment is very different. Here it is tranquill, the sea within is calm and a mountain resides within. A full-moon has risen but a solar eclipse is taking place, which shows important change and beauty. A female being stands, with wings outstretched on this mountain - I have left the viewer to decide what she is and which way she is facing as people see this part of the painting differently, as I do on a daily basis. The moutain reflects of different elements of Gaia and this mountain is reflected by the sea.
However, when one turns the painting around to look at the reflection, it is seen differently. What looks like a fish in the upright position is actually another rising sun elsewhere and the being on top of the mountain is different, being male for a start.
The upright view of the painting feels calm, despite the outer choppy seas and the solar eclipse but the reverse is different, although it is reflected in the calm sea, viewers feel the being has an entirely different energy, which is not as calm.
This painting reflects worlds within worlds, with its different energy forms and this reflects the lives of the lovely couple that commissioned me to paint The Gateway.
