All The Signs Were There - 2020
Acrylic paint on canvas, with a wire mounting ready to be hung.
The process for this painting was not like most of my other paintings. It's actually a total paint over... there was another completely different painting underneath but after some months I realised that I didn't totally love it and if I don't totally love something then it gets edited, augmented or worked on until it's wonderful... but this painting needs more than just a daub of paint here or there... it was a total paint over and it felt so good to be bold enough to do that.
So the new painting is an exploration of mysterious wonderful places full of magic, a fairy kingdom... there is great depth to this piece with a huge amount of detail.
