I recently spent time with my best friend Adam, his wife Nadia and his children, Ari and Leila. 

It was an afternoon when the weather was unseasonably clear on a day crisp with frost and promise, that we ventured to Knighton Park in Leicester, close to where they live.  

It's a wooded park known for its variety of different tree species, and the colours that met us in the bright afternoon sun filled me with a desire to paint.  The crystalline quality of the immaculate blue sky against trees of such brilliant burnt orange and soft bright yellows became the inspiration for this painting.  As did the company. 

There is something quite wonderful for me spending time with the children of my friends and brothers.  Ari and Leila, at 4 and 2 years old are both complex little spirits eager to show me how fast they can ride their small pedal-less bikes, chase me around huge tree trunks and watch with fascination as I drop pine cones into a small brook, making up stories about the far away lands they might be bobbing away to. 

 

I realise of course I've become the kids entertainment, which I kinda love,  as my friends huddle on a bench close by, heads leant against one another's in tender exhaustion. 

This painting is all about positive energy.  The kind that nature, friendship and talking absolute nonsense (something I am quite adept at) with kids gives me.  If you're familiar with my work you'll know I have a little fascination with looking through trees into the blue sky.  I hope this good and restful quality comes through this work.
