Genoa Series   

pastels

Following the death of my first wife, I went through a bleak period where I was denied inspiration. The Genoa pastels represent a rebirth of sorts in which I was able to gradually get back into painting. With a new love in my life and a reawakened passion for landscape, I took all my existing landscape drawings, shuffled them together and made random picks, one at a time. This unplanned, random selection saw the start of my Genoa Series of pastels.
