A lot of my work is about the process, the journey from beginning to end. What I begin with usually has no discernible voice at the end of a painting although, there are traces of the initial idea and brush strokes under all the layers.
This series of paintings began about 18 months ago - before Oscar was born! - and hung around the studio being neglected (for obvious reasons) then rediscovered in new ways several times. Spinning them sideways and upside-down I constantly discovered new possibilities. I now feel they have reached a level of completeness that I am happy with (although I am never entirely sure.)
So, here are some before and afters.
