12 "Nuage" studies

I have just completed the 12th study for the "Nuage" series.

As an artist, sometimes you reach a point, where thinking overtakes you. It is then best to step back and re-focus, find that 'still point of the turning world' a place to clear you mind. It is in those moments that I find myself setting up a simple still life, and losing myself for hours or days, then I feel I can move forward without the baggage of thought that had been weighing me down. I have completed some small works, and enjoyed the process very much ..I now feel much clearer, and more focussed.

To stand before a blank canvas fills me with excitement, trepidation and dare I say it...fear, and I love it. I am amazed that even after 35 years of my life as an artist, these feelings still wash over me, at the beginning of the creative act.
