The Puerto Rican Canvases January to March 2004

After a request for some paintings on canvas by a gallery in Puerto Rico, I eventually produced these paintings. Not having used canvas for many years it proved to be something of a challenge, as I prefer the softness and absorbency of paper. The result is my most figurative work yet, and introduced images derived from classical and religious statuary. The real value of this work for me, is that it led the way for the series entitled 'A Golden Age' and my most consistent period of painting to date.
