Feast for the Soul

The process of painting is visceral, engaging every fibre of my being.
Sight, smell and touch engage every step of the process.
 From the initial cut of wood designed for stretchers. 
Trapped oils from the fibres release into the studio air.
The aroma of raw canvas. The texture of woven fibres.

The feast begins once the act of mixing colours and applying them begins.
