"The cure for everything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea" Isak Dinesen
I thought of these words while I was making this new series of watercolour paintings. A lot of different emotions come to the surface when I am trying to build a new series. There is great excitement and disappointment as new images emerge. I feel like so much of my life right now is working with a trial and error theory. Its fairly up and down like when the sun shines through the rain and you remember how lovely a day can be. When I reach a block in the studio or with home life I always go to sea to find the cure or at least to breathe a fresh breath and then dive in again.
