This piece was painted on a commission basis for a very special woman in Brighton, UK. It was commissioned by her son.
The view is from her hallway window, looking back out over the houses and hills of Brighton. I snapped a photo quickly, secretly, so as not to aroused suspicion.
The process of making this painting was a joy.
What went wrong? I had to part with it once it was finished!
I am never really that attached to my works once they are finished. This one was different. By the time it was done, I didn’t want to give it away. I wanted to hang it on my wall.
After seeing her face when she received it, I was happy to let it go.
