Ironically this painting started it’s life as an ice painting. Glacial in fact. Paul Stapleton and I had been discussing doing a series of ice pieces, and that’s where I went with it - sharp peaks and crystalline facets. As if mimicking the thawing of the ice age, over the next half dozen years it slowly turned into a sandy, albeit mountainous, desert piece. Perhaps it was global warming as I can’t really recall working on it!
