About this painting
The dramatisation of a choice; the love of a woman or the love of art.

The painting depicts an instant moment of realisation, hence the comparison with the revelation to Christ in Gethsemane. A figure made of dead wood touches a tree-woman, a parting gesture perhaps. In the distance a glorius destiny, a fate that the daffodils consider narcissistic.

Technical details
My typical technique for composing paintings begins with a small, instant, idea sketch, which I expand as faithfully as possible into the full sized work.
