Blood Multimedia oil and wax medium paintings

In this series the title can have multiple meanings to many different people:
Mainly used in the UK, "blud" comes from bredrin (brother) or blood brother blud,
doesn't have to mean a literal brother, more like a friend, "how you blud?" "safe blud."
Urban “blud” means homie, bro in the hood or gangsta bros. However, the word Blood
strikes a specific cord to me.    

In 2013 I suffered a near death illness. During my recovery, these multimedia paintings beginning with Blood Orange metaphorically reflects my intense anger, rage, passion
and desire to dig myself out from near death with a resilience and determination to
gouge and scrape away- digging for blood,from the surface, the dark disparity into
the light of life, survival to thrive, give thanks and have gratitude to be alive.
