Artist's description:

The Blue Nude erupted onto the canvas in 45 minutes flat - this lady urgently and desperately needed to be brought through into existence. I had been staring at a blank canvas for a couple of weeks - trying to conjure time and meaning to 'get to it'; with her pose and shape already configured in my's no wonder she was so impatient....ready, steady..........wait

Four colours on a flat palette and a brand new bendy palette knife, and we were away........after concentrated, unbroken painting for nearly half an hour, it was time for a cuppa, and to share the excitement of the new piece with a good friend.

'I love the faces' she said.........which was the first time I even noticed that there was a veritable menagerie that had crept in with her - deer, horses - even as I protested that 'she doesn't have a face'.

That was the beginning. There is probably a more eloquent name to be penned for this piece, but I like the immediacy and simplicity of Blue Nude - a lady who is overt, strong and enthusiastic in her straightforward approach to life, and has the subtle support of the animal spirits, as totem guides.
