‘Light’ is traditionally the subject of choice for the work of artists throughout the ages. Light conveys richness and depth, at its best connecting viewer with artist and nature itself. For me the making of a picture is a quest to, in part, to amplify that connection. Put simply: the more accurately the mindful vision is reproduced on the canvas, the more successful the work. Colour is a device which helps convey the richness. The all important composition, the arrangement of parts which make up the picture, is deliberately developed to find balance and
harmony. The use of architecture and things made, in contrast with the natural, is all about us, appreciated by all who see. Light streams on endlessly, here to be enjoyed. What people like in the pictures comes from within themselves; the work merely acting as a mirror.
