The Ladies of The Forest
This painting was triggered by a self portrait I took in the Scottish Highlands. I had a fabulous frame that I wanted to re-use. I cut some MDF for it and started from the self portrait. As I painted I was compelled to include the frame in the artwork. Black and White animals appeared in my mind, including my beloved Saluki, Gandhiji who I lost too young to cancer. This painting is full of love and meaning to me. Connecting to my roots past and present, feeling the glorious love of the free spirited animals that roam the forest with me.
