Today's sudden finished canvas - Leap.

Friday 03 May

Well, here we are. I've had a frustrating set of weeks and issues just recently, as have some of my dear friends. None of us felt or feel this desperate, yet I know how many do. For some, this jump is a choice. For others, it is an odd last freedom in a disaster utterly out of their control.

This is a small piece, just 30cm square. Yet it has shocked me with its power. It's not the same hopeful message of Am I Free? though again there is a single figure in a fog. Sometimes we just have to acknowledge what is without trying to transform it. We'll only understand after the Leap.
