    Gorgeous. And just enough of everything- drips, blue, suggestion. Neither abstract nor depictive. And deep mutted colours with a serene brightness. Its strength lies in its suggestion and composition and requires little else to create a bigger picture to the viewer. I love it for its dusty coolness and contemporary use of relative space. A triumph of artistic approach and creative realisation. Magic indeed.

  • :) such compliments! thank you, David.

    Ah, the wing of a blue angel. Your painting draws me into the myth. Thank you for energizing myth, they are so important to us, but are too often forgotten. They are the stories that made us. Beautiful realization.

  • Thank you :) Myths are great… anytime the ordinary can be explained in a magical way, I’m all for it!
