Flaming Ait

70 x 70 cms

I was going to call this one islands in the stream but.. with all due respect to Dolly and Kenny...I googled to find out they are an "ait" or an "eyot". I've always liked them. The idea that one could jump from one to another and so traverse the river. This one came out looking a little like a submerged dragon, but I never mind when these animals turn up in paintings. 

This was the first time in ages that I painted a blue sky and some fluffy clouds. It came out as a really happy picture. A little "Lucy in the Sky" with tangerine trees and cellophane flowers. I always like to get some ethereal quality in my work.
