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
