Nature: “The One, Ginkgo Horizon”, 60×48, mixed media on canvas.

“I am not just a pretty picture,I am a canvas rich in history and is the last image I will see. I have been painted over at least 4 times fully to a new image each time. I have lost count of the layers of paper and paint that have come

before, as in life, I have lived fully. I was once a red dot series, then migrated over to a wannabe spiral and on to the green crater wonder and last year while I was moving it became the blue mountains majesty. The preparation to change this took many layers and washes. I am rich. I am like no other. We are home.” I am The One and play with Ginkgo.
