Portrait of a Scottish Poet and Painter

In the case of ‘Portrait of a Scottish Poet and Painter’ (one of many of this stunning beauty scattered randomly among the chaotic pages of this website) I responded to requests to exhibit an image as a work-in-progress, and so I displayed the half-finished canvas which, at that stage, I guess showed my muse in what seemed an unequivocally mutilated state. Subsequently she attacked me in an internet café, and, thrilled by her fiery beauty, I painted her obsessively to produce another eight portraits of her from memory which my Facebook followers count among my most powerful and beautiful paintings.

    An extraordinary portrait! It’s like something amazing discovered on the wall of a cave. I love her raw, visceral, womanly power. This image is so layered it comes across as being painted with passion over a long time, scraped down and painted over many times. Beautiful.
