"The woe and the wow and everything in between" Oil and acrylic paintings There are many things that have challenged me over the past ten years of painting. All involve living in the role of wife and mother in a large blended family and also trying to be true to who I am as an artist.

I paint mainly at night as that is the time when all is quiet and the ravages of the day have settled. It has been ten years since the diagnosis of my lymphoma took me by complete surprise; not really good timing after the birth of my beautiful daughter. The paintings in the exhibition are a sample of the nearly two hundred that I have painted over the last ten years. Exhibition open everyday during 9 - 20 December 2012 http://www.vidaryan.com
