About

Colouring the canvas, Colouring me!
I started painting to colour time on my hands, it turns out, painting coloured me. Ever introspective, painting transports me in to a world of imagination that is free, reminiscent of those rare moments in my childhood when I thought I could fly. When I lose control and play, letting the paint flow freely, something mysterious happens that is separate to the objective task of colouring 'time on my hands'. If I stand back from the finished painting and feel awe, having no idea how I did it, or where it came from, I'm satisfied.
I get as much pleasure finding the symbol, poem or quote that best expresses the feeling of the painting. It ties together my careful, introspective nature and my wild, unruly child - together they surprise me. Skills I've learned with practice are the consequence of trial and error, and perseverance. Not knowing the rules, nor having a learned skill set, means I have to allow the child freedom to be outrageous and to experiment freely, and the adult permission to be objective as the painting unfolds.
