Secret Stairs – oil on panel – 96.5 x 102 cm
With blossoms blooming in every direction I thought it might be nice to revisit this old picture. I have never been entirely sure about the composition or lack of one. However it’s been a popular image over the years and one that has sold well as a print.
The scene is a made up and it’s the kind of place I like to dream about. But what does one find at the top of the stairs?
Interestingly it’s painted onto a cool ground colour and that’s something I’ve gone back to starting with the Afterglow pictures which appear in the early blogs. My current paintings of cherry blossoms should be featured in a blog fairly soon.
