WPC: Abstract

Abstract expressionist value expression over perfection, vitality over finish, fluctuation over repose, the unknown over the known, the veiled over the clear, the individual over society and the inner over the outer.

— William C. Seitz, American artist and Art historian





Taking a close-up of a mundane object – in this case a door with peeling paint – I then played around with a stained-glass effect. Fascinating to see the myriad of tones that emerge from this mainly blue palette.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.
