About the work

The figure depicted in the drawing is my wife, taken from a photo of her on holiday in Spain when our daughter was a baby. Those days are blurry memories now. We had dreams and expectations, some we still have, some have altered and evolved, some forgotten.
The drawing is a study for a large painting but was done part way through the making of the painting, a document of a stage of working but also a helping hand to resolve some issues within that bigger work. The painting itself is unfinished and continues to evolve, as we do. I’m enjoying the impossibility of capturing a character, a few (significant?) signs of who she is, what she means to me, and what I (think I) bring to ‘us’. The picture is a document of personal evolution, but it’s also about thrills; thrills in life and thrills in picture making.

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
