A Still Life. I find I'm turning inward more as the world is spinning out of control with the pandemic, the war in Europe, the energy crisis. I focus on painting about 'A Still Life', by painting still lifes. This doesn't mean I'm withdrawing from the world entirely, but rather it is my way of reflecting on what we value as a society. As Rebecca Solnit writes in Whose Story is This?: " ... because political action is about protecting the vulnerable and the beautiful. Paying attention to those qualities is part of that project."
