Work In Progress
I spent most of yesterday edging this painting closer to completion. Here’s where it was 2 days ago:
I’ve learnt over time that my best work emerges from a loaded shadow of influences that seemingly bear no relation to the finished piece, so while on the surface this is just a painting of a bird, there’s a lot of other things feeding into it, including (to name just a few) – W.B. Yeats’ The Second Coming, Stanley Spencer’s memorial chapel at Sandham, John Burnside’s I Put A Spell On You, and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Push The Sky Away.
