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 .

Maggie LaPorte Banks artist comments: "My Art is routed in landscape, influenced by childhood memories of Donegal, by Lough Swilly, surrounded by dark mountains. I spent ten years living near to the Brecons Beacons and painting using a tent as a studio in all seasons. For over thirteen years I was an artist in residence in a cottage on the end of Cape Cornwall overlooking the Brisons at different times of the year. Therefore, I have a vast amount of passion for the skies, sea and mountains which I love to involve within my paintings. My recent works have been developed from these roots and are becoming much more abstract, focusing on 'the essence of place' through the colours I use and emotions I have created. I work mainly in oils, acrylic and mixed media, sometimes adding unique materials such as sand, carborundum, iron fillings and many other products I feel the work dictates."
