I just realized that I forgot to share the completed painting I created for my friend Koos de Jongh. I knew I would incorporate orange as it is his favorite colour (if his shirt isn't orange his shoes are) and also wanted to include Payne's Grey as a deep, masculine charcoal. I added turquoise as a strong third colour as it feels like sky & reflected water to me. Bright and fresh and new. Because I know he's experiencing new change and growth in his life, I added the circular image from a telescope or binoculars which also resemble crosses for the faith required to focus on new paths, to travel in unexplored territory, as I do believe that each of us has more than one way we can contribute. The scope also is a physical representation of the word, which means 'aim or purpose'. And finally, the red lines represent enthusiasm, energy, protection and the confidence to go after your dreams.
