I love to paint. I made these marks with my fingers in a whirl of energy. I used acrylic paint on canvas. When I had finished the piece it had no title but then Nicola, my wife, named it. She felt it was very much a part of me. For this painting I had used a part of my body to make marks about the way I was feeling, and she saw this as me leaving my mark, leaving traces of who I am. So we named it ‘Traces’. I like that.
