As Memory Fades

here's the finished painting:

As Memory Fades





The idea was to paint what happens as memory fades.
The blocks represent the memory that somehow can be grasped, almost right but not quite perfect. The shadows around some of the blocks represent the certainty that this was how it was - yet they lead nowhere. The lily represents the vitality of life and the desperate need to hold on to something that was once familiar and loved. 

But you don't need to know all that :)
You could just enjoy it for being different :)

  1. Morning Pat! I like the contrast between the straight lines of the blocks and the curves of the flower! And I like the story behind it!

  2. Morning, Judy.
    Sometimes you have to paint what begs to be painted - and its a wonderful feeling to know that someone else appreciates it xx

  3. Hi Pat, for me it's always interesting when an artist tries to represent a thought, a feeling or an idea. As you have done with this painting, this work is the result of an emotion that you put on paper with colors and water. Great job! Hug.

  4. You know we all appreciate your paintings Pat. I love this finished piece and your interpretation. It's beautiful. It's sometimes strange the way our muse takes us in different directions sometimes.
    Hugs to you and Missy.xx

  11. I loved it without the explanation, but then when you explained it I loved it even more. Thought provoking and a bit melancholy, but I like it. :)
