Act of Creation is a large colourful oil painting of a beautiful alpine landscape exploding out of the canvas led by three rebel swallows. The scene could be Austria, Norway or Scotland as these three places are among the most inspiring landscapes I have ever been to. The purpose of painting it was to try and capture the idea of creation. I believe that everyone carries their own universe around inside their own mind and that they can therefore create rival universes to the material one that our bodies live in. This is a bit of my universe. I started with a dark background and then began to paint the scene from the centre outwards. It shows a hut (where I want to live), a lake, hills, trees, wildflower meadow and then the swallows who are leading the way. Swallows are very much symbols of freedom and are just so beautiful that I keep coming back to them. This is dedicated to all the musicians, writers, dreamers and artists who are creating beautiful things for the rest of us. Life would be meaningless without you. This painting is 40x40x1.5inches, white edges, ready to hang
