These paintings evolve as layers are applied covering and revealing new shapes and colours. There is not a plan in advance, I am using the memory of my recent visit to the stones of Carnac. The surface evolves in the same way as the landscape, time changes things, a painting is complete when it sits just right in my mind, nothing needed to be added or taken away, a strange stillness and calm, like a journey complete.

We still don't know how the great stones of Carnac or Stonehenge were moved. Once we perhaps knew more than we do now or perhaps what we knew was more relevant to living in nature as it once was.
