Total freedom to paint an idea is what I seek with many of my abstract paintings. Having read the title one might think that the painting is of a subject. No. The painting is of an idea. That is why it is totally abstract.

  • If you are after something that is exquisitely colored then this painting is for you, The color palette was decidely pastel themed, with lots of hues that remind me of joyful things.
  • This is a very densely painted piece, it offers ever more visual delight for the viewer the closer they get.

The story behind The Most Beautiful Woman That Ever Lived

Once upon a time, there was a woman that was the most beautiful woman that ever lived. She wasn’t beautiful in the physical sense – she was very ordinary in her appearance.

She was a doctor (and nurse) who treated the sick in her community – specifically the poor. She went out of her way to travel to the slums, carrying her large leather bag which contained most of what she would need to help others. This small, petite woman traveled to areas which were deemed to be so dangerous the police were afraid to go there – and yet she never once was faced with any threat. The reason being that everybody knew this woman to be a selfless caregiver who sacrificed every bit of her time and money treating those considerably less fortunate.

This woman spent her whole life helping others, and towards the end of her life, she was asked why by a politician who had recently learned of her work. “I do it because I believe in the power of love. Unlike you and those who worship money and your malignant and corrupt form of power, I choose to love and help the poor, and in doing so can make a small and important contribution to those that surround me.”

He was stunned, angry, and responded with a diatribe of nonsense. He spoke of how people needed to work in this capitalist system…..blah,blah,blah.
