This is an abstract painting based on recollections of a hike across Bleaklow moor when I was still a young teenager. It snowed, and I was carrying far too much. Bleaklow is a peatbog, like an earthen sea, and compasses don't always work up there. At one point I just sat down and suggested that my two accompanying cousins leave me there - it seems silly in retrospect! But I was shattered. My older cousin, Paul, who was 17 to my 14, ended up carrying my rucksack and his own - to my shame.
The squares are like windows to the memory. There are bits of clock workings in there too.

Oh wow, I love it. I'm not sure how you managed it, but the texture of this painting looks like marble. The specs of color and swirls are intense and interesting. What canvas did you paint this on?

Thank you! I actually stuck cutout board onto the canvas and painted over them in thick oils. :-)

oh that makes sense! That's a pretty neat idea, the paneling reminds me of a door
