This painting was inspired by my love of maps. As a child I spent hours copying maps of all the continents enjoying the outlines of individual countries. In this painting the journey is one that goes inward I was interested in the idea of an interior landscape, mapping experiences, emotions, fantasies and unknown territories. I enjoyed playing with shapes, values and colour in relationship to each other painting layer over layer until I felt the painting was complete. Beautiful hues of blue, yellow, green and lilac combine in varying degrees of lightness and opaqueness. I used artist pigments and fine china paper that I dyed and built up in layers. The canvas has been painted around the edges in a complementary colour. Hooks and cord are attached at the back - the painting is ready for hanging. The painting is a little bit lighter in hue than the camera captured. The painting comes with a certificate of authenticity.
