This painting came from the sensation of being in the darkness of woodland whilst aware of what lies beyond. A tantalising glimpse of cool, bright colours hints at a spaciousness that promises to relieve the closed-in sensation under the foliage of these dense pines. Could it be that this image resonated for me with the indomitable optimism that I cling on to in these dark times?
