Painting Description

This painting and its companion piece, Spinning Away were the first 2 paintings I made after my husband’s (non fatal) heart attack in 2015. These 2 were based on what he told me about how it felt when the attack was happening. At one point, after hours of pain, he just wanted it to stop, he wanted to go, he was drifting away. He told me that at that exact point in time I touched his shoulder and that snapped him back to reality. At the time I didn’t realise, all I saw was him starting to slump on the bench he was sitting on and I wanted to reassure him that we were doing all we could to get him help. How life turns on the smallest of moments…
