Front up for your own life. Acrylic paint and ink on plastered reclaimed fabric. 30 x 21cm. (12 x 8 inches.)
Did you know that the most effective clinically proven way to reduce stress, improve health and combat the effects of ageing is to practise Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction meditation (MBSR). In learning MBSR, one phrase stuck out in my mind: Front up for your own life. In other words, be present, be mindful, stop and smell the roses. And that's what I'm trying to learn to do. This painting is for anyone who, like me, needs a daily reminder to be present and mindful, and to enjoy there here and now.
This artwork is made with many layers - some of which I dirtied and slashed into, creating gashes across the painting. It is signed with my Fixie stamp on the front, and is sprayed with a protective coating so that your investment will last for years.
Note: the colours or contrast shown on your computer screen may vary slightly from the actual artwork.
