The History of Lovers in the Sky - by Mandy

I have painting people in the sky for decades now - It stems from having lost members of my family - I think I originally used art to put them somewhere or express my hopes that really they were always with me. As the years went on I also began to see the spirits in the sky as my phyche or emotions (unless i draw it like a pattern in the atmosphere which definately represents all the dead people floating around and becoming dark matter - I shall explain this is a later newsletter)

Flying Lovers

Upon googling 'Flying Couple Painting' I have discovered that it is the most beautiful historical motif. The most famous of all being Marc Chagall. The latest painting I have done is called 'Love is in the Air' and is one of the images in the collection on this website.

The Buildings

The buildings are created from basic shapes. Circles, squares and triangles. They are a continuing motif in my work and make me feel calm when i create them.

The Three Trees

I have always liked to paint 3 trees, it is compositionally strong - but i think to me it is more than that. So I looked it up on google to see if it was an icon like lovers flying in the isnt - but I did find a lovely bible story about three trees. Perhaps I have read this in my childhood and it has affected my phyche somehow. The basic premise of the story is that the universe is always working in our favour - even if we cant see it at the time. Which works for me
