This work is from the collection I call Diary of Wishful Tendencies. This diary of abstract expressionist paintings reflects my moods in the days, weeks and months following a personal loss.

It was a loss which landed me in absolute emptiness – the outside world not touching me anymore. I was hiding in a cocoon, waiting for a process of healing. The process of healing became the process of creation – in which I myself was the subject matter.

Living and working in Abruzzo, Italy is also a major inspiration for these works – you’ll see the colours of the soil, sea, olive groves, vineyards and sky. You’ll see hilltop villages which suddenly appear as you round a bend in the road. Snow topped mountains as you enjoy an unhurried lunch on a terrace.
