Early Morning Thoughts

Oil on Board

2013 Moran Portaiture Prize – Semi Finalist


One early morning I opened my eyes and gazed ahead….that moment when you wake up and just ponder. I started to study the way the light cast shadows on the folds of the sheets. I love sweeping lines and the sheets made such lovely curves. I am constantly thinking about the next painting. I wondered how the sheets could frame a portrait and so I grabbed my phone from the bed side table and from arms length took this selfie.…. This became the subject of my Moran Portraiture Prize entry in 2013.
