Acrylic on canvas, 2022, 15 x 15 cm

This is one of the small and very small canvases I have in my studio which act as idea boards and the recipients of spare paint, until they suddenly become finished in their own right. Usually there are a lot of layers on them. The gold paint on this one reflects light, stands in for light in sky and on water, and sandbank shape. I love gold and other metallic paint for this reflective quality. There is also a quiet connection to religious icons.
