This painting is about a series of photographs I took of exotic flowers and fabric arranged as altars, some roadside altars in Hawaii, the Greek Islands, the Caribbean, and a dream I had while staying in an artist's house in San Francisco. A strong man regally dressed in silk with a staff coming through lush trees in golden sunshine, speaking to me, asking me, 'What do you want ?'. He had a very strong presence which stayed with me for weeks. The next day, I told the owner who was called Opal Essence and she doesn't mind me using her name, she smiled, the shells and keys wound into her hair tinkled as she said, 'a lot of guests have had vivid dreams while sleeping in that room.' For the painting I used a 1960's black head vase whose face has a regal look. The idea of exotic princesses in lush backgrounds. Lilac Gladioli flowers are above her head like a crown and flowers laid before her like an altar, larger at the forefront to give the impression of looking up to the altar. I think an altar can be to anything or anyone, a way of focusing energy and creating beauty.
