"Lost" is part of my red thread of destiny series that Ive started.
This painting is 50x70cm and deep edge. All the sides are painted and is ready to hang as is.

Lost, red thread floats in the air........lost at sea...lost loves...lost friendships...people will see it different and cause debate amongst people for their views.
The back ground is done in light pale tones of grey and blue with the only bright colour being the red .

Red thread of destiny or red string of fate is from the far east often chinese and japanese.

One old story featuring the red string of fate involves a young boy. Walking home one night, a young boy sees an old man (Yue Xia Lao) standing beneath the moonlight. The man explains to the boy that he is attached to his destined wife by a red thread. Yue Xia Lao shows the boy the young girl who is destined to be his wife. Being young and having no interest in having a wife, the young boy picks up a rock and throws it at the girl, running away. Many years later, when the boy has grown into a young man, his parents arrange a wedding for him. On the night of his wedding, his wife waits for him in their bedroom, with the traditional veil covering her face. Raising it, the man is delighted to find that his wife is one of the great beauties of his village, and he notices she wears an jewel on her eyebrow. Asking her why she wears it – she replies that when she was a young girl, a boy threw a rock and it struck her on the eyebrow and left a scar. The woman is, in fact, the same young girl connected to the man by the red thread shown to him by the old man back in his childhood.
