Tension. I’ve tried to paint, mainly with acrylics, but I found myself immersed in digital art creation. I often awoke with a certain freneticism, a consequence, no doubt, of my erstwhile profession as a lawyer. I try to convert my dreams and consequential thoughts and mental images into digital art. After I’ve ‘painted’ a digital image, which can take at least a month, I have it printed as a five foot wide canvas. I painted this image after waking with an unidentifiable anxiety. https://witness.theguardian.com/assignment/553a6300e4b07b1d1d52a524/1506747

Stark Transition. This was and still is difficult to express in words. I awoke feeling confused and anxious. This image took over a month to complete. My feelings were very different towards the end but I didn’t want to lose the portrayal of my original emotions. There is a kind of resolution in the use of bright colours. A five foot wide print on canvas. https://witness.theguardian.com/assignment/553a6300e4b07b1d1d52a524/1506753

Among The Trees. I woke with happy thoughts of childhood forays into the New Forest. I wanted to capture green leaves with sunlight shining through. I limited the colours and simply can’t explain the red except to say that I felt any other colour somehow seemed incongruous with the feelings and thoughts I’d had on waking from a vibrant dream. Again, printed on canvas as a five foot wide image. https://witness.theguardian.com/assignment/553a6300e4b07b1d1d52a524/1506750
