“Over the River”


“Over the River”- 60cm. x 72cm. Acrylic, charcoal,ink, on paper.

This painting was given the title “Over the River’, because it was influenced by the PD Warrior stepping exercise of that name.  I find it a helpful training aid for my walking ability.   Unfortunately, nothing is foolproof, and I suffered my first Parkinson’s related fall recently.  The falling figures within the painting are a direct referenceto my own first fall.  Documenting this way is helpful.  Although I shall not forget this tumble, the painting fixes it in time, adding  a chronological order to the event.

  1. I love this. The sense of things tumbling, I thought, and then I read your text. Here’s hoping this image is absorbing possible falls and keeping them away. And it’s just a beautiful picture in of itself.
