Following on from the popular landscape of ‘Perfect Grasses’ completed 10 years earlier, the winter hedgerow grew from right to left, realizing from the start that this project would consume vast amounts of time. The branches gradually increase in size as in all plant growth, again playing the ‘what if’ scenario if I persevere with creating these growth patterns. Definitely in this picture my mind as telling me of all the hours that I’ve put into my work over the years, will I see a financial return/do I really want to sell them/but I must if I’m going to become a serious artist and make a living. But then the process of drawing the ideas become disturbed and I carry on my own sweet way, battling with the onslaught of facing bills at the end of the month.
