TO GATHER TREASURE

Acrylic and paper on linen, 2022, 30 x 30 cm

this little one received its last layer from the extended brush when I was painting the series, but it had been around in my studio unfinished for a long time. Many changes of mind. Scratched into the thick paint with the point of my palette knife is “the colours of flowers”.

The treasure on my mind is the sort you might gather from a walk in the forest or on the hills, immaterial and invaluable.
