Watching the Stars Watching You

A small part of how this painting came about.

In the Studio

This is a small snip of today’s recording of a current work in progress. It is a diptych in 100 x 100 cm (or both at 50cm x 100cm) that I am working on.

Entering The Dream

My most recent painting entitled ‘Entering The Dream’. A visual description of being immersed in my surroundings deep in the forest. A recall of flickering light through movement, of fast changing seasonal colours, of mood and atmosphere, of sounds and scents and of the euphoric warmth that it brings to me. The piece is paintedContinue reading “Entering The Dream”
