I knew something was missing last week when I was working on the erotic couple painting but carried on regardless (isn’t that a Carry On film…….?) and yes, my gut reaction was right, there was something missing. Not in the painting, in the making of it but then that in turn made the painting. But I carried on, thinking I could overcome it, and lo and behold after a couple of hours stood back and realised that trying to ignore something that I needed wasn’t going to improve it at all. Ok…. lets do it then.
A quick flick of a switch, and I scanned the screen, searching for what I needed.
There they are, the little beauties……..

Yep that’s done it. Loud and clear…..
Picking my brush up, and moving with the rhythm, letting the music take me, letting it envelop me, the brush moving in time to the fast beat, the thumping rhythm, the beating drums.
And at the end of the session, when the light is fading, I stand back from the picture, and say outloud “Wow!”
Thats done it, thats put the life in it!
