Fantasy Land is the third painting of the Rimini Series and was conceived while travelling on the train from Milano to Rimini. The heat was easy to absorb as this part of Italy was having an unusually extra hot summer that year, as temperatures soared into the forties (just the way I like it!).
Modelling paste and glass beads are the texture which gives this painting a tactile finish.

Cosy Cream was inspired by the top of a hot chocolate I had ordered in a restaurant. The froth which had mixed with the chocolate was almost too perfect to disturb. The milk had eased into the froth, blending shades of umber and hazel, spreading into tasty creams, fawns and schlor lor lur luurrrr!!! Delicious, wrapping my hands wrapped around this warm little cup of cosiness.

Broken is filled with emptiness and confusion. The fleshy colours symbolise an unknown internal inner journey.

Brighter Days is the first painting of the Rimini Series. After a month spent in Italy visiting family, it almost painted itself when I returned to the studio! It was BURSTING with energy and almost on fire as it heated up the canvas and gave birth to the ‘Rimini Series‘.
It is full of the sights, smells, sounds and romance of the experience.

Petals is a follow on from Broken. It holds a positive clearing space as the petals fall away and unblock the pathway where confusion and emptiness prevented a positive energy flow.
