This little boat sits just outside the big wooden doors of the old lifeboat house down at Lizard Point. There are so many gorgeous colours, the rust stains, scuffed fiber-glass and old paint. There are so many fabulous textures, stone, old wood, rope, metal, concrete. When I see things like this I can feel my heart beating too fast, I get butterflies, almost a mini panic attack, but its not panic, it is a bit like an adrenalin rush... about a potential painting! The feeling carries on while I am painting, if you were to ring me up while I was painting and I sounded strange that is why, I am in the zone, on my own personal drug of choice, flying with watercolours and beautiful paper and wonderful brushes, breath-less and a little crazed! This one has taken days, now I am exhausted!
