“Stolen Moment”

Acrylic on 300 gsm. paper, 50cm. x 70cm.

A moment in time, gone now; all that is left is it’s affective impression. Early morning sunlight streaming through a window to mark the beginning of another glorious day in an otherwise, drab Welsh council house.  The sun’s brilliant light refracting through panes and its kaleidoscopic brilliance reflecting off everything within. A dazzling start to a new day. As ever,all seemed well with the world. Oh! that is rather a clichèd  phrase. Modern communications technology instantly and constantly  remind me that all is never well with the world.  Nevertheless my world remains full of such “stolen moments”.

Is it too much to expect that in 2017, all may be well in the world.
