I follow a wonderful painter, David Sandum, of Sweden, who posted a fabulous photo of a loch in the Scottish Highlands on a stormy day. David kindly agreed I could use the photo as inspiration and this is the resulting painting. When it hung at an open studio in Victoria, Canada recently, people were very surprised to see that the painting is composed of hundreds of pieces of cloth. I love the painterly and dramatic presence this piece has.
