The Optimist embraces the colours of summer, it was inspired by spending time in woodlands and fields in Berkshire. The landscape scattered with small streams, flowers  and ponds with the sound of bird song hanging in the warm air. 

I painted it using pallet knives, sliding wet paint over wet paint and using the edge of the knives to draw lines and shapes into the paint. I love this painting as it feels so optimistic, hence its name.
