New Painting - View over Macau

The last 12 months have been hectic thanks to a combination of high web demand and new babies which has resulted in some very slow progress on the painting fron but finally I have something new to show - View over Macau.
This painting was made using cotton and ink on raw canvas and was based on a view overlooking the Chinese special administrative region of Macau. A short walk from bright lights and casinos of down-town Macau is a more gritty, less glitzy city, which provided an irresistable backdrop for this rather dark and foreboding painting. Buildings are stacked in a haphazard almost accidental fashion with numerous wires and washing lines acting as linkages between the spaces people live in.
