This is one of those paintings I did to get something off my chest that I really am not able explain to the wider public (that means you, dear readers!). It’s personal and meaningful to me. It helped me turn a corner emotionally, just the act of painting it.
It turned out to be quite a good picture, I think. Take whatever meaning from it that you will, that’s what it mean.
I’ve not often used such strong colours in my water colours, but I do like the way this came out. Might do some more of this sort of thing. It just seemed right at the time.
Of course, while i was painting it I was watching a documentary on the last day of Jim Morrison so now I’ve got the Doors music running through my head whenever I see it.
