What an unremitting year, such a worldwide torrent of unconscionable human behaviors and failings.
The studio this year was a sanctuary; exploration and expression a refuge.
The paintings that I worked this year were very personal records of explorations from a point of reference that responded daily by contracting and expanding leaving varied colours, marks and energetic movements on panel and paper.
Though I did not intentionally set out to have my own version of a sabbatical or gap year that is exactly what has happened. It was a good year to take it.
