“Inspiration came on a Wednesday and brought me this lovely lady face, I quite adore her.”

And, so, Lady Face was born.

I had previously been addicted to painting cityscapes, I’ve always had this fascination with them, the magnificent beauty they hold from afar, beckoning for you with soft whispers and promises of what could be, adventures that lie ahead. So dreamy. Yet, so tangible. Only a plane or bus ride away but oceans in between. What’s behind all those lights anyhow? What truths unfold with each step nearer? As long as you remain on the far side you create the script for what stories unfold beyond the skyline. Years of wonder.

In a moment, the wave descended. The city stepped back while the lady appeared in the foreground. Maybe she is what was to be discovered past the glow.
