When speaking to others about this piece I have continually heard myself say that this was the most honest and satisfying painting I have undertaken – I still agree. There was a real freedom found in the creative process, I was excited to step up to it with the knowledge that I did not know what to expect, no planning, no demands – such freedom! Painting in the ‘Now’ – now there’s a good title for a book!
