Written while working on the above painting.
I am still working on this painting in oil which I started a couple of months ago.
Sometimes it can take me more than a year to complete a painting because I do not like to work on it unless I am
in the mood from which I originally started the painting in.
Very occasionally I will work on a painting in a different mood to which I first started it.
Then the painting will become a different expression of my emotions. Usually then a reflection of the contradictions in my personality or more optimistically the new growing & developing attitudes deep in my personiltiy.
This painting is that of a very beautiful woman and I do not want to rush it, in order that I do her
