This painting has an otherworldly quality that harks back to the original ‘Clearing in the Wood’ completed in 2012.
It just seemed to come out of the ether and has a different palette from the last few paintings with flatter colours that give it a more abstract feel.
The colour arrangement has resulted in something that has a magical quality as the yellow light-filled clearing is surrounded by purple coloured trees with a milky turquoise light filtering through them.
What we could meet in the open space? There is a sense of expectation lurking…
I would love to hear what you think.
