“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.

“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.”
‘A Note on God’ by Michael Leunig

My latest six-word painting is more ‘rough art’ rather than fine art. It has lots of texture and touches of iridescent white and shiny gold (which aren’t really showing up in the photos). The nest wasn’t part of the original concept but just sort of appeared while I was working on the composition. Painting this reminded me that when I was very young, I wanted to sleep in the branches of our walnut tree, underneath the stars. Who am I kidding? I still do.
