This motif was a long time coming. At first I wanted to leave the central area blank or just clouds and sky to make it universal. However, Nicky from Artipeeps on Twitter who gave me this opportunity, suggested a universal central motif might work. I let this mergle away with me. Then I remembered the yellow flower, not sure what they’re called, that came from Charlie who is also collaborating on this Ovid Metamorphosis project too. He posted a wonderful photo of one that I loved. I found the same flower on a walk to our local Brungerley park. I drew it into the border on this giant oil pastel. It occurred to me that flower represents so much, and that had the universal quality that I was looking for.
