The New £20 Note & Artist JMW Turner – February 2020

The new plastic Bank of England £20 notes came into circulation on 20 February 2020 and will eventually replace the paper £20 notes still in use. They are made from a plastic polymer like the new £5 and £10 denominations, which is said to be more durable, cleaner and secure than paper. The improved security features include further steps being taken against counterfeiting with 2 windows and 2 colour foil.

There is lots of 2 energy represented here, which may bring painful feelings of separateness, but is ultimately about looking deeper to find truth and  share it, to develop something new after a period of time.

Turner was known as ‘the painter of light’ as his paintings of landscapes and seascapes conveyed great emotion and passion. Sometimes turbulent and often violent, his seascapes connect directly with the 2 energy, which in Numerology is represented by the element of water.

Rather than communicate what was seen in the physical realm, Turner was about communicating the energetic essence of the scene, alive with emotion and movement, making the spiritual come alive in a flat, physical form. Turner’s paintings brought in new thinking with regard to painting and a new art movement.
