It’s 5:48 am, I’m on my second cup of coffee and the sun is shining, casting shadows on the Co-op carpark at the back of my house. I’ve been taking a break from the long and winding roads that have featured heavily in my work of late. I’ve come to a crossroads, weighed up my options and decided that I need to get back to painting faces. My studio is warming up and my paint no longer takes ages to squeeze from it’s tube due to the frost on the inside of my windows. Those days of sitting on top of my radiator are gone.
A work in progress of my daughter Ella.
