I’ve just completed a new painting entitled ‘Grounded’. This is based on a derelict World War 2 airbase in Staffordshire and looks at themes of abandonment and solitude. The painting has a softer and more subtle technique which I think helps to create the right mood - one of stillness, calm and introspection. This is a retreat from the overactive mind and the busy routine of daily life. With this view, everything becomes beautiful, interesting or both.
