Sometimes creating artwork is like a fist fight with an invisible critic...but it's worth it - you do some growing n' learn some new moves instead of only repeating old patterns! In this case I am exploring these strange little gardens hidden from time. A little world apart from the hustle and bustle of everyday drudgery. These paintings are loose in the application of paint and quite experimental, the grunt work is in keeping the composition together despite all of the elements at play in the image.
In the city we don't always have gardens - but sometimes there is a little space we call our own that serves the same purpose. Maybe we hang some nice art there or a quotation that reminds us of our particular interests and values. The space gives us solace and reflection. Do you have a place like this? Or is it time to create one? I'd love to hear about it because I'm very interested in this at the moment !
