My artwork is a reflection of my life, and my life experiences. Family is so very important to me and the memories I treasure most was to watch my husband and daughters ride off together to check the cattle when home on the holidays. The sunsets I have seen during our travels were so inspiring and I like to reflect his in my paintings. My acceptance of my mortality made me realise how special my life was and how I cherished the holidays we all had together as a family.
All of it my family is what makes life a beautiful amazing place and we should all have our family’s around on holidays and every day
"Through Our Eyes"
By Franceine Ladbrook
What matters when we reflect upon our holiday memories and lasting experiences is love and kindness to all, regardless of species. Kindness and understanding is a reflection of that love. Our true oneness with nature and all it's glories is reflected through our eyes from deep within us, like looking into your soul. When life slows down we can see a clearer view of what really matters, as we connect with our universal self. Feeling part of that universal love offers peace and tranquillity which can be passed onto those around us to be proactive in change for the better.
Today,tomorrow and future
When I look at you I see a gateway to today, tomorrow and future.
Lead me in your truth, be the one to Guide me and walk beside to show me the pathways of traditions and teach me to embrace every opportunity; it's all about life's journey..
