We are on the road again! The bags are down and lists are being made and modified. We are leaving in two weeks for the Northern Hemisphere, we are planning to spend a year living and working in Scotland. There is so much to do!
I paint mostly intuitively, guided by the principals of visual harmony, initially, in a purely abstract manner dealing only with line, colour and texture. I often start my work devoid of any subject matter, allowing the images to be revealed rather than dictating the direction of the painting. As the painting progresses, it may germinate thoughts, ideas, feelings or dreams which need to be transformed into visual images, using my own alphabet of symbols. The painting may take many transformations, until the work arrives at its destination and is complete.
