The Sum of the Journey Makes the Whole


This painting is available at Day Gallery, Blackheath


This painting is named for the process of painting this work. I had thought the painting finished but it didn’t sit ‘right’ with me. After some time facing the wall in the studio I took it out and put it back on the painting wall. Initially I thought I’d gesso the whole thing, but sat in front of it and thought I’d ‘go for broke’ instead. The journey has taken some time to come to completion, I think it’s been worth the time and energy to complete it. The complexities and layering combined with strong colours work well. I’m happy now. The title ‘The Sum of the Journey Makes the Whole’ is very fitting
