After months of dithering I have finally gone back to painting what I really enjoy: colourful, sometimes nonsensical abstracts. They do get a bit surreal at times, but not intentionally! Here's the first one.
You might be wondering why I don't do any artistic soul-bearing! I don't really go in for esoteric meanderings and so writing reams of stuff about interpretation or motivation would be entirely untypical. I like it when people enjoy looking at my work. I want them to play around with the ideas the paintings suggest to them. I don't want to put thoughts or ideas into their heads. There's usually so much going on in my paintings that they'll find something to think about without any prompting!
