The heatwave we've encountered reminded me of the years living in the South of France. Each summer the SIrocco wind would blow from the Sahara towards the Mediterranean coast. In the mornings the streets , cars etc would be covered with fine brown sand. During this recent heatwave I found I found only paint in the studio using hot colours, reds, magenta , pinks. The work is acrylic on canvas, leopard print is collated onto the surface , as is gold leaf. This piece is guaranteed to add heat to any room on a chilly English day .
