Sometimes, when you’re trying to figure it all out, you get a small window to see through to the bigger picture and the hope that you’ll work it out in the end.

  1. Well done Pauline, I see a new flag here: green of grass, blue of sky, but with a volcanic underlay often polluted by smartphones with dodgy connectivity.

  2. Well done from me too Pauline. I am very glad this is not another long lunch. I am really engaging with this on so many levels – why the picture within the picture? Why exclude the cross? fencing off a lone cross in the distance – something died – literal or figurative? Hope within the frame – fire has energy, vibrancy, green is growth blue is hope. Death (or is it also hope) outside the frame. Simple cultural icons which can have so many meanings. I am loving this. I sense a struggle of some sort but that struggle will be won. Hope is a powerful thing, never let it lose its grip on us. Thank you so much for your inspiration and insight Pauline. I am sure it will all work out in the end. It must.

  3. I like this a lot. It is ambiguous enough to change its story each time I look at it.

    The whole picture is an unknown. Inside the frame there is little to guide the viewer – it could be seen as dark and sad or as a beginning for new growth. Then outside there are some hints. I see patches of sunshine, on the left and front right, while the cross represents salvation and a way forward.

  4. I like this a lot too. At first I see the cross offering salvation between heaven and hell. A christian viewpoint that is outside my own view. But it is outside the inner frame too. It made be think that I still have my own view that offers me hope. I also like that balance of fire and water that aligns more with my own views.
