  1. I am reading the DUNE novels at the moment and the orangey/burnt umber color field reminds me of the planet Arrakis. If you squint, the vertical dashes could be Fremen congregating on the sand… 🙂

  2. I am glad you like my responses to your work.

    As an musician/interdisciplinary artist I have always gazed with fondness over the fence at you abstract painters with love and envy; eager to be taken, like the DUNE novels, to new worlds I could not imagine alone.

    It probably seems old fashioned now with YouTube and Vine, but I would rather look at abstract art for hours rather than cat videos and people falling off skateboards. The Picabia room at Le Centre Pompidou in Paris is a million times more fascinating; I could live in there forever!

    In fact the title “it was the wine…” is slightly connected to DUNE via the fact that the Bene Gesserit witch Lady Jessica Atreides ( the hero’s mother) takes “the Water of Life” (poisonous worm bile) to become transformed into a superwitch/Mother Superior: the ‘water of life’ being a reference to the old Gaelic name for whiskey, which came from the Latin term aqua vitae!

    DUNE, alcohol, and painting go hand in hand. 🙂
