These are PAINtings in which different aspects of pain or associated themes are expressed in paintings and drawings.
In part three of this series about health and illness, I would like to present some thoughts and ideas about chronic pain.
I haven’t managed an update to the site for a while for various good reasons. Here’s a quick peek into my chaos at the moment. I can’t write about everything for reasons I can explain later so here goes:
Finally decided to get out a bit as lockdowns are significantly lifting. We wanted to see the mountains again with all other things here being generally insanely busy at the moment.
