It’s been another month of exploring colour and it continues to be a subject of great interest in my work. The colour relations and melodies are very pleasant worlds to discover.
Painters through the centuries have commented on their feelings and responses to the vast and mysterious subject of colour. Pablo Picasso’s quote caught my attention.” Why do two colours, put one next to the other, sing? Can one really explain this? No.”
I have also been thrilled and amazed recently at how the internet is such an incredible tool in which to showcase ones work and have it seen and enjoyed around the world, 15 years ago this would have been impossible. Some of my discoverers have had amazing insight into what it is I am doing and wanting to express with my work. Caroline Wong from Singapore had the following to say - ‘I found your work on a blog I follow and I am finding it difficult to stop staring at your paintings. The works are truly amazing and I am very taken by your art. I particularly enjoy the series, the sea and the city, as they speak to me of the human condition of looking without really seeing’.
