‘Droplet in daylight’, Acrylic on canvas.
I created this acrylic painting while living in Doha, Qatar (2006). I felt inspired to paint the charming minarets, mosques and vibrancy of life in the traditional Souqs. This powerful image of the overshadowing blue ornament came to me in a dream, when I woke, I couldn’t wait to paint what I had visualised that night. Recently, I’ve come to believe it may be a subconscious symbol of a water droplet as the heat was phenomenal in Qatar. What do you think? Doha is a captivating, beautiful city, I hope I’ve captured this in some of my cubist paintings that can be found here.
