This is a painting which is totally self indulgent and free. My mentor at art school was the celebrated illustrator Gerald Rose . He was an inspiration and I always aspired to paint in the manner which he employed . This romantic venture exemplifies the free nature of his work and I hope that he is happy to acknowledge my efforts. I loved the colour of Pierre Bonnard in my formative years and again I would like reflect the joy and indulgence which his painting conveyed. Don't ask me to analyse the painting further . I did it . I like it . I hope you do too.
