About this painting
Painted quickly from an idea sketch as a response to the discomfort of irritable bowel syndrome. The spiralling tunnel containing a paradisical scene is a visualisation of digestive good health.

Technical details
Most of my paintings begin as quick unconscious idea sketches. The simple sketch here was as much a mnemonic as guide to the final image.
