This is the largest series of flower paintings
|I love doing large scale flower and nature still lifes.
There's no reason to assume that Monet's waterlilies
are an end point in such developments.
Monet is a leading spirit to me
but there is so much he left undone.
In some vineyard variations which
I'm engaged with at the moment, I'm seeking
to integrate an impressionistic close up of leaves
and grapes or tendrils with the vaster atmospheric
depths of the wide landscape.
