I painted the basis of this a couple of years ago and only this week returned to it, to finish it. I had been experiencing a renewed and relentless bout of insomnia and with the additional feelings and thoughts I had about that, my artwork had the added material that i needed for completing it.
I wanted to capture the feeling of insomnia; so I literally switched off intellectual thought and just put brush to canvas and let it flow; I had no idea what would come out. I find this method of painting fascinating; especially as a former psychotherapist myself.
I paint using acrylics on canvas.
