THE STORY 

The inspiration for Rainbows End came from a friend’s photo stimulating me to paint the pleasure of dolphin’s at play as they stirred a deep joy in the hearty of children. Dolphins rainbow Zorb ball

My challenge was to see the effect of using a gesso-primed coarse canvas. The painting was created in 1989 and has been exhibited numerous times since then.

In 2016, I added some symbolic interest to the dolphins’ play by including children inside a Zorb Ball, evoking a sense of childlike wonder during stress-free playtime.

I added Joy Bubbles leaving the Zorb for the white yonder. This depicts the pleasure that affects the atmosphere with childlike joy.

The ability to appreciate rainbows, oceans, mammals, and sunlight, with the freedom to play, often becomes a distant memory if we don’t learn to record good and thankful memories during the pressures of modern adulthood.

Creating and recording good memories is an antidote to fight against bad mental health, which will deteriorate into depression and hopelessness.

Pleasure in the imagination, telling stories, and painting

A child’s imagination finds joy in both the fantasy of the end of the rainbow and the sight of a dolphin playing in the wild.

Stress can easily rob a healthy and playful imagination of its untouchable delight. Simple pleasures are hard to see in an anxiety-ridden mind.

I have swum, played, windsurfed, and surfed with dolphins and orcas. I owe a great deal of gratitude to my maker for these special experiences.

Remember to take time out, stop worrying, and learn to play again. It’s liberating when you find good things to thank God for rather than complain about all the junk we are daily fed through the media and misguided friends.
