This series of paintings came into being in the wake of the very extreme ups and owns in weather during the course of 2013, and explores the way in which weather affects teh soul, or even resembles it.
Does the sould refelct the weather, or does it just inhabit the landscape affected by it? The paintings here are huddled and moody and sometimes, like the old man looking for his keys, conder their belongings locked up in their small formats.
