Tenderness

image The colours in this painting sit precariously one on top of another in a state of delicate yet miraculous balance. A harsh word or an uncaring attitude muddies the purity and defences are built to withstand the unkindness. In contrast there are expansive and affecting moments of tenderness which enfold and surround – times when kindness uplifts and sustains us.

“Thoughts, memories, visual association – the sum of a painter’s daily life – personality and experiences feed into the work.” Paul Benke
