A Facebook friend, a new one, the very talented Senor Vaccaro asked about “the dream painting of “The Golden Age” “?
A very good question.
” Is there anything remarkable about the location? It is a beautiful piece!”
Certainly the location exists; partly in us all, and at the new castle upon the hill of the far seeing, a bastide in SW France, Castelnua de Montmiral.

I suggest the painting is part of my/our feelings, myths, dreams, ideals.
I am experimenting with increasingly exploring those and similar qualities in my paintings.
I shall paint this scene again in a different way, and several others of similar aura.
I need a patron or sponsor so I have more time to paint where no one has painted before….
I find my work is increasingly turning to feelings, aspirations, inspiration, dreams.
Maybe I am cracking up, maybe I am navigating “uncharted waters where monsters do live”?
