Permission To Feel
Oils on Canvas
61 x 84 cm
There is a lovely story about this painting and how I found a name for it. So there it was sitting on the easel in the studio and a client had come in and was standing there looking at it. She said to me I just love this painting - it makes me feel, which is an unusual response to a painting - one I've not heard before.
Being unable to contain my curiosity I asked her if she would mind sharing what that meant for her. She replied that it gave her permission to feel her feelings. I thanked her so much for sharing that insight, it was an intensely deep moment and helped me to realise how important art is and that we need to keep doing it and sharing it.
