Paintings from 2020

For the past three months I’ve been working on oil paintings again. Themes are similar to those I’ve embraced with the recent watercolours, but with the oil paint and oil bars I’ve returned to a more expressive way. Shamanic dreams and experiences feature strongly in these works. All the works below have been photographed with my phone, in my studio, and a few are possibly works in progress. With the Covid 19 shutdown I’ve had more time to reflect, and to adopt a daily practice of being in my studio, as well as in my garden. Without working to a deadline, or any planned or desired outcome, I’m feeling freer with the works, and I sense their voices speaking without fear or particular attachment.
