Rather than a statement, an assertment is called for, as to discover excitement, even in the most mundane of subjects. The scape, a stalk bearing leaves reaching towards a flower, morphs to become a land, a sea, a mindscape, minded for all its possibilities. Never quite finished, always open. A window. A mountain with many doors. Mother nature's milk to quell the thirst poring forth. At times loud, then still. A life. Lively the movement of the brush, the dance, the word of colour, red, as written, the sound, and yes, myth, inspires much of my work!
