Blast to the past: this is the second pastel painting I ever did, and the second seascape I ever did, and in fact the second painting I'd done for 20 years. I sold this 2 years ago and 10 months later I walked out of full time employment to become a full time artist. It's the hardest, scariest, most crazy thing I've ever done, but my last 15 months since have been the most eye opening, moving and humbling of my life. Some parts are really shit. Many parts are great, and some bits shine so bright they take my breath away. Life's so short, grab on to the things that make you feel alive!
