This painting, is one of several that I am currently working on with a view to an exhibition later this year all things being equal…the inspiration was a photograph that I took in the 80s of a young girl living in poverty in Albufeira, Portugal-I have never forgotten her and now nearly 40 years on I have loosely used her image and predicament and placed her in an imagined landscape aligned to poverty where food is scarce as a result of global warming.
As the other works progress I shall post updates.
