It was appropriate that I should add today’s painting to my collection of ‘works in progress’.
While going through my folders last week I ‘found’ today’s featured painting, one that I had commenced a few years ago, but never finished.
This is a social commentary and sees the opposing forces (conservationists and the forest industry) in a game of chess. The game has reached ‘checkmate’, but is there a winner?
I shall be adding some surreal objects, such as tables being pierced by axes, half-buried chainsaws and chairs hung from gallows, all part of my ‘message’.
I shall comment later following further development of this painting..
