Art does not reflect what is seen, rather it makes the hidden visible.Paul Klee

These small abstracts are a continuation of what appears to be becoming a series of sunrises with windows — beginning with my two recent paintings — and although ‘Departure’ and ‘Arrival’ are available separately, I think they look even better as a diptych.

There’s something about a sunrise

‘Changing Planes’ — acrylic on canvas, 355 x 460 mm. Available.

Whatever happens next, it won’t be what you expected.
If it is what you expected, it isn’t what’s happening next.”

“Whoever wants music instead of noise, joy instead of pleasure, soul instead of gold, creative work instead of business, passion instead of foolery, finds no home in this trivial world of ours.”

Hermann Hesse

“God bless our contradictions, those parts of us which seem out of character. Let us be boldly and gladly out of character. Let us be creatures of paradox and variety: creatures of contrast; of light and shade: creatures of faith. God be our constant. Let us step out of character into the unknown, to struggle and love and do what we will. Amen.”
