I created Solitude while I was still in Crete. Although I wasn’t thinking so at the time, you could say it symbolises my yearning for peace and solitude, as well as freedom from fear and anxiety, all of which I know that my cottage on the Isle of Wight will provide, even though it doesn’t look like the photograph by Antony Delanoix (Unsplash).  As you can see below, it’s quite bland and thus a perfect starting point for my playing. I couldn’t find any details but I imagine it’s Greece or Turkey or some Mediterranean country.

I used a grungy yellow background from my arsenal and a texture from Kerstin Frank and, though I say it myself as shouldn’t, I was delighted with the effect! Hope you are too.

Honoré de Balzac


 


“If you’re lonely when you’re alone, you’re in bad company.”
Jean-Paul Sartre
