KarenI've of coarse been looking at your images on this site a fair bit since I've arrived as you have one of the strongest voices as a figurative painter here. Your boldness with color use is inspiring.The unfinished quality you remarked on in my work is something I think livens this image with a fresh feeling. There is always something so satisfying by someone working in representation but retaining a transparency of process.Your work, especially with this portrait shows a real love of painting in such a sensual physical way. I could almost be in a carnival looking through these colors . It is a pleasure to sit with your work.I really appreciate your feedback. You give such a lovely testimonial of how an image might evoke some sense of history and hopefully a feeling of affinity or recognition with the image.Best regards Patrick
I love it!!!
This is one of the best things you’ve ever done. It’s so free and melodious and colourful and filled with love and appreciation. It has music in it and joy and hope. So I will keep my fingers crossed for you to be able one day to repeat something like this again and again and again . . .
