Last year someone gave me a very large picture frame that has sat empty for several months. A few weeks ago I tacked up a big piece of brown paper and started outlining a design but I kept waiting for more inspiration to come to me before I could carry on with the project.
Yesterday the inspiration came in the form of AP — who paid me a visit at the studio and then sat down with some paints and worked happily for a few hours while I knotted beads.
The concept, in case there is any confusion about the painting, is about our trip to the Lake District and the encroaching industrialisation of the countryside.
I’m rather fond of this quote:
May you find inspiration and time to create — no matter how good or bad or silly or serious.
