'SOLD / The Journey continues / New Work
"The Journey continues" is a medium sized Original Acrylic on canvas by Santie Cronje. Created for our 3rd Birthday Show this work is part of a series titled "Walk with me" Six new originals sharing stories of reconnecting to our inner child, life with children and the stories we share and reflecting on the great moments and memories that we hold dear. Each piece is created within an oval shaped dome. A rainbow, a safe space, a memory.... happily in their own world.
If our life can be compared to a book, this piece will be the end of a chapter and start of the next stage in our lives. She is standing at the shore lovingly looking down at her two children and embracing the next stages of their lives as they're growing up and starting to leave the nest. She hopes more than anything in the world that they will always follow their hearts to realize their dreams.
Size: (h)500mm x (w)500mm on stretched canvas, ready to hang.
