January 2015

I finished a December painting, a swan on the Westhay nature reserve seen late one afternoon, white against the dark of the water.

I have also just finished my September Gunnera, which has metamorphosed along the way, taking far longer to paint than other painting, probably because of the complexity of the female flower, and the inside of the leaf, like lace, in the sunlight. I wanted the whole thing to be very sexually suggestive, and I think I have now achieved that. I am told that Georgia O'Keefe didnt actually think about such things?!
