A splash of colour.
Returned home from an artist residency in Portugal. Feel lucky to have met some generous people and got to investigate new ideas.
Exploring the dynamics of combinations - such as forest scenes and dancers movements.

I have currently completed a series from the Xalo valley in Spain. This valley is covered with plots of cultivated land with almond trees. When in blossom, the trees are a spectacular sight. It is a popular recreational area for the inhabitants in the surrounding villages. Sadly, the municipal authorities were on the verge to send in the bulldozers and initiate yet another holiday housing project. Thanks to the strong protests of the community, their plans have been postponed.
Last week in Spain, collecting images of the almond trees.
