For most artists, not every painting is a success. The non-successes are often tossed into the bin, burnt on the fire ... or like me, painted over, again and again until it feels complete and right.
This is what happened with this painting. I can't remember now what it was I painted before this final painting, but I know my heart and soul went into it all, and I have a secret pleasure in the knowledge that loads of creative history and passion for painting was worked into this image.
