First really exciting painting of 2011

Occasionally I start out with an idea, and it works out very different to how I plan it - or, as is usually the case, the opposite of 'plan' it, whatever that is - and it transforms into something surprising and unexpected and rather beautiful.

This is the first large oil painting I've started and finished in 2011, and it worked out something like that:


It's called All Time, Everywhere, Anyone, and measures 100 cm by 100 cm. Funny how figurative and abstract can manage to straddle a fence, isn't it?
