On Friday I put the finishing touches to this painting – maybe more could be done, but I wanted to have it finished. It went off to its new home with my daughter on Sunday. Some time ago I sold a painting (see A nice surprise) which had been occupying a space on her wall. Very graciously she let me take the painting away, but I promised I would eventually replace it. It had to be something that worked with another painting of mine she has, and this one started to look as though it would work as it developed. It was inspired by a snippet of a plant form, but now to me feels like something from under the ocean, maybe storm clouds, a volcano or something from another planet … open to interpretation.
It is oil on canvas, 60 x 60 cm.
