South African Artist
I love the smell of paint. I love the feeling of the paintbrush gliding over the canvas, like a lover's tender caress. The layers of paint, shaping and evolving with each vibrant brush stroke. A little bit of you slipping onto the canvas and imortilising you. The texture as you gently touch the dried paint. The joy and surprise, as you stand back and think, "I did that"! And eventually the painting becomes an old friend, you know all it's secrets and fears.
