Elysian Flowers

My starting point to this painting was a collection of flowers seen locally back in September 2016, which then evolved into Greek/Roman mythology with reference to certain family members and their life at the time. I deliberately wanted Roman Empire purple and gold colours included, but then the original flowers were purple.

It made me also think of the film, Gladiator and Maximus’s lines – If you find yourself alone, riding in green fields with the sun on your face, do not be troubled; for you are in Elysium, and you’re already dead! Brothers, what we do in life, echoes in eternity.”

So, strangely amusing to me, when you take this painting into Photoshop, crop it a bit, mirror it, you end up with an image that is similar in style/theme and found pretty much in all civilisations/religions. Echoes of Eternity. Elysium/Elysian spelling? Both are correct, Greek or Roman, before anyone questions.
