If there's one thing not to be taken seriously it's all the important things in life. Art, however should be taken very seriously. Now I'm working on a picture called There's A Lot To Be Said For Endorphins. I love the idea (see picture) so much. It's a good illustration of how difficult it can be to translate the feeling of a tiny idea sketch into a full size painting with colour, tone and solidity. It also shows that these ideas are mnemonics for me more than fleshed out ideas. I know what everything is supposed to be but what the things are isn't obvious to other people.
