Inspired by a vintage painting. This painting was a response to the Artists own frustrations with trying to progress in life. The words were added as a nod to the motivational slogans that are seen frequently in todays society.
The words 'HOLDING ON' have been hand drawn and painted with a glossy black enamel paint, using traditional sign writing techniques. 'Never give up' being a typical motivational quote that is often seen in popular culture.
It has been painted on to a linen canvas that measures 50 x 70 cm in oils.
