Anne's Description: I'd been living in a spot surrounded by hills, which felt claustrophobic. I liked the open aspect of these fields seen from the A76 between Dumfries and Thornhill.

Anne, I would like to ask you what you think of Anselm Kiefer on one hand, and Edvard Munch on the other (this came to me mostly by your Shore of Memory).
Maria, I saw some of Kiefer's work years ago at Tate Liverpool and loved it but Munch's work does nothing for me. "The Shore of Memory" was one of the paintings I made following my brother's death 2 yrs ago. My Mother and Father are gone also. I found I couldn't put the faces in. I would be interested to know why you thought of Anselm Kiefer and Edvard Munch. The pain of loss?
Well, it had nothing to do with pain or anything. Just the way your paintings are painted. This one and the next made me think of Kiefer because of (as far as I can make out of the image on the screen) the flatness and at the same time deep perspective of the paintings, plus what seems to be thick material surface. I thought of Munch because of the long contour brushstrokes and simple, flowing forms without much detail.Thanks for the storm of comments on my work...
