So I am working on a new collection of work as I have a very busy schedule ahead of me this year and this painting just came out of my head the other day and I am really in love with it.
The palette is very different to what I've used before but I think this image has come about from a trip to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to see the Norman Ackroyd prints.
His beautifully dramatic curtains of rain combined with the day being a very misty spring morning plus seeing about 16 herons.... I kid you not!... on an island in the lake at Bretton has resulted in this rather mysterious looking painting. Who can tell what goes on in an artist's mind at times?
