"Stone And String” was the last of the “Desert ” paintings and is probably my favourite. It was like after all the years of painting these themes, some of them very complex indeed, I’d finally got to the nub of it. The vibration, the waves, the resonance... the essence. I liked the idea that you can almost hear how the painting would sound if you plucked the string. In a way it feels like this is where I should start the series ... or end it.
