'Whimsical and sensitive... everything about this painting is cute! The composition is quirky .... the naive style of the cob... but then the colours are so sensitive... muted greys, subtle tinges of deep orange glowing beneath the layers and then that zingy lemon yellow!'
Artist's statement: 'I repeatedly worked over this piece, but managed to stop at the right time ... it was tempting to keep going, but then I would have lost the spontaneity and simplicity of it.'
