Flowers Growing Through Chains, Oil colour on canvas, 43 x 28 inches. © C. English.

In this painting I show the idea of change, where we see through, and grow through the changes of life. Yet at the same time we are shackled and anchored in chains were nothing much changes ( i.e.-we live in a physical three dimensional space, existing on a planet). Flowers represent our inner self, with changes of spiritual development. Where as in the exterior life we only have the one body, with the various changes of age and physical limitations.
