Oil & charcoal on canvas
This work is a mindscape piece, reflecting on the luxury of having uninterrupted time to be creative. It is a painting of gratitude for the calm to be derived from working in solitude. This sense of solitude was cherished from the artist's childhood, growing up in Gloucester and spending silent time away in the countryside. Clouds in her work always represent thoughts of some kind and here there are set upon a jade and deep blue background. There are swift black strikes, which have been softened and these were painted with a pheasant feather. Charcoal has been scattered to add trails of intermittent ideas.
