The Smaller Picture

Reflecting on how the last two years have been overshadowed by one global big picture, it occurred to me that most of of my recent work has been about the smaller picture: the beauty of close-to-home landscapes through the changing seasons, the simplicity of a still life, empty interior, or the observation of stoicism, witnessed in the elderly. Perhaps they are all about loneliness, to some degree, and the longing to get back to community, but I see them also as being about patience and using this strange time to take stock of what we have to hand, and treasuring it.
