“I want to fall to sleep with you, 
and I could care less
whether it is in
layers upon layers
of clothing
or only our skin -
all I really want is to wake up
not knowing
where I end and you begin.”

- Beau Taplin, ‘A Goodnight’

Upon Layers is on its way to Sydney to its new owners x

It's been a morning of deliberate destruction with paint, followed by a walk and coffee. Incidentally, destruction is part of my own process. This, I must remember today. It is very rare, that a painting will come to fruition in a speedily fashion, mores the pity. The current canvas has been figuratively tossed aside, to be replaced with another that was banished to sulk against the wall this past week.

To loosen up, this is throwback to an earlier time, when paint was thrown and rags were predominantly used rather than brushes.
