Posted by Picasa We have been growing this beautiful plant from a tiny cutting but haven't got a clue as to its name ... any ideas are 'probably' welcome ... IT IS NOT GEORGE or HARRY.

OXFORD - early spring after a shower - oil / acrylic on canvas - SOLD

Posted by Picasa
This painting is on its way to South Africa soon.
This was a challenge. I find all commissions hard to handle because they impose restrictions through time, expectations etc. Under the top layer are many many tight attempts.
Yet again I got to the point of just scrubbing it down when suddenly an idea came into my head of how I wanted it to be. As the rag removed layers of pain and struggle, an image, a clue, started to grow that I could relate to. Immediately the battle began to turn in my favour. I found the freedom that was needed.
