With the colder weather these days all I want is to be surrounded by warmth and so this new canvas will be about summer. It always interests me how different colours feel. With these oxides, reds and oranges, even my studio feels warmer. Being surrounded by warm tones makes me want to paint something related to summertime, perhaps something that I haven't painted in a long time. I think that's what the 52 WEEKS projects do for me, allow me to focus my attention in a new direction and to take the leap to try something different. We'll see how this transpires. And, please wish me luck, today I write a final exam and I'm a little nervous. Deep breath and fingers crossed!
