Playing With Paint...


is always constructive. Most paintings don't know what they want to be; this one was opinionated. Spirit Tree. Mixed media on board, around A4 size, for those of you interested in these things.

There's a lot to be said for being playful. We sometimes paint ourselves into corners. Actually, we never paint ourselves into corners; we think ourselves into them, in the search for Something Else, something greater, some higher meaning. Sometimes there is only a tree. Or a butterfly. Or a frog. And whatever it is, is beautiful, suggests itself, dances round the garden. This piece is my equivalent to a dance round the garden. There are more serious, deep and meaningful pieces going on upstairs, but that's another thing altogether. This is here, and now, and above all, it's fun. Make sure you have some fun, today. It feeds the soul. As does chocolate.... Oops! My obsessions are showing...

The surface of this painting is intriguing Marion. Funnily enuf it reminds me of an aerial view, like the ones you get from space. Bring on the chocolate!
