This week's prompt at Illustration Friday is launch
"You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment."
~ Henry David Thoreau
I love those words "...find your eternity in each moment"
In this painting I really wanted to capture that feeling of eternity by physically isolating the moment.
Literally, launching the moment out to a place where nothing and no-one can break in.
I've used 2 of my favourite artists, Van Gogh and Monet to make sure that it is a completely dream like location, impossible to be real anywhere but in your mind.
Unfortunately, due to my poor photography, it is hard to see that the boats are made of silver leaf and the image is a little darker and very textured.
Hope you have a great weekend,
(acrylic, silver leaf and mixed media on canvas)
