About "Lady Love"
My two labradors are fourteen this year and I have never painted them. I wanted to create a painting showing the interaction and love that exists between human and dog. I asked a friend to model for me in different outfits in my garden where my dogs are at home. I took hundreds of photos and just when we thought that the picture I was hoping for is just not going to happen, I snapped the photo from which the painting was produced. Just a quick moment which captured the interaction I was aiming for perfectly. I took my time painting this, placing a lot of focus on my dog which was the original idea behind the painting. Also a painting I am very fond and proud of.
Like most people, I struggle with my inner critic. But I get an indescribable satisfaction from the act of creating a painting. I spend a lot of time with each canvas, trying to find the right expression of light in a journey of discovery, knowing that when I do manage to find it I'll create something special. An object of value. I enjoy the journey of discovery almost as much as the finished work and the appreciation expressed by others.
