With a Soft Thud
This painting is one of the very few that came to me, without a search or struggle to develop. In the act of painting it I felt like a sort of midwife and needed to just ‘not get in the way’. However the story of the painting did begin many moons ago, when a north country woman told me of a dream about her recently deceased mother.
In the dream she was standing in a field by a puddle and saw with joy a crescent moon reflecting up at her. She recognised the moon as her mother.This image stayed with me, shifting and changing its context through the years. Then arose fully formed. The boundlessness of blue and a particular silence in this work led me to its title.
