What would a new painting look like?
Most probably the same at the ones that have gone before.
Not necessarily. Things can be different if we so choose.
Well, therein lays a philosophical debate spanning the centuries.

I’m browsing my old paintings, considering what my next painting will be like. I would like it to be different. To break new ground. To represent the advent of a new horizon.
You always say that.
Yes, I do. But this time I mean it. A return to Oils? Perhaps, but we need to go deeper than just a change in mediums, granted it’s a laudable suggestion.
This painting is called ‘Humpty falls the second time’.
A reminder that it is possible to shake up subject, medium, indeed life itself. Turn things on their heads and look anew.
