Welcome to the art of 
Finela Moore.

"Bohemian rapsody 4 of 4"
mixed media on 4 canvas's; total size 40" x 40"

At the time that I painted "Bohemian rapsody", I had moved into a phase of joy and celebration in my life, a time of fulfillment in my knowledge of myself, acceptance of life's challenges, moving on to embrace all that life offers.  This phase is depicted in the dancing figures which fly across my canvas's one after another, taking me with them into further depths.  My work always represents where I am at the time: spiritually, emotionally and in actuality.  The figures are realistic only to a point, after which they become idealised in some way that best reflects the phase of my own life experience.
