Life With Echo
Oil on canvas 20 x 20 inches. I wanted to say something about life with my dog Echo. At first I thought to pack the painting with all sorts of detail. But on second thought and leaving the painting lying around for about 14 months I came up with this, keeping it simple. Its from imagination which i do not usually do. Yes They are my braces, yes I am practicing to be a monk. Yes my favourite colour is blue. I am not sure I am as wide as that, but once I got the figure down on canvas, I said “let it stay.” The rainbow was done by placing seven colours on a piece of card and just pulling it round in a curve. And yes I do wear rainbow braces. Not my usual, but the painting says what I wanted to say thats the important thing.
