Memories of a Bright Morning

Back in 1998 when I was on a cycling trip in Suffolk, doing some research for my painting 'The Enigma of the Chinese Mask' I made a big drawing of a cornfield on a glorious summers day. I suddenly remembered about that sketch, when trying to decide what to do with the background of some of the canvases of my latest painting 'Snow Angels and No Angels'. I had been unhappy about just leaving the background of the corndolly pictures blue, when the snow angel and mermaid images (which I am also using) were more intergrated and had an overall colour scheme. So working from this earlier study seems the ideal solution.
By the way, I have thought of a good title for my next picture. It's 'Got Your Number' Ted
