About "My Cup Runneth Over"
"You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life," Psalm 23
This emotive painting had to have abstract elements because it was created as a vehicle to show visually what one can feel inwardly when you've reached a sense of fulfilled contentment and gratitude. The 'pouring out' of ones soul.
Fluid, soft brushstrokes were used to hint at a disguised, inverted wineglass which is gently being emptied of red wine - the symbol of blood.
Hazy octagons of light dazzle at random areas to add a spiritual essence to the work.
The bold colours radiate warmth and love.
The vertical format becomes architectural and strong within a linear frame.

Shelley Reeves completed her Bachelor of Fine Art degree at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa, in 1994, majoring in Painting, History of Art, and Psychology. Her 4th Year Final Exam Self-Portrait was purchased by the University at the end of that year.
She completed a Higher Diploma in Education-Secondary at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth in 1995. Teaching secondary school Visual Art for 13 years resulted in numerous teens being inspired to pursue careers in Fine Art, Architecture, Fashion/Jewellery/Graphic Design, Animation, Advertising and Teaching.
Her deep respect for Scripture and Spirituality forms the core of her artistic inspiration, together with social interactions with an array of people from various cultural backgrounds. Her psychological understanding of the heart of man continues to ignite in her a compassionate, humble and cognitive love for humanity.
Shelley chose to stay at home to take care of her two energetic toddlers when they arrived in Dec 2010 and Mar 2012.
She plans to move on to produce Fine Art that seemlessly and abstractly reflects her innate passion for Home Interiors, Construction and Design, combining these aesthetics with her maturing spirituality.
