Reflex auction in support of Alexi Keywan

A woman stood on the back of a flatbed truck looking up at the sky, and the bush was all around her.

A scene, glimpsed through a bus window, that inspired the two paintings below. I will be donating the smaller, red work, Forest (Clare), to a fundraising auction in support of Alexi Keywan, a fellow artist suffering from terrible complications following surgery for endometriosis. There will be 150 works by different artists available.
