From the artist:
I decided to do my last ever painting for now in terms of more realistic style because my neuropathy has really progressed in my arms and hands which has left me with a little muscle strength. I am just going to do abstract from now on. this painting is quite different to my usual, I’ve used Winsor & Newton’s glass beads texture gel,a Pebeo 4artist paint marker (gold gloss,I got it all over my good shorts to), and acrylic paint on a used canvas, I Painted over it with a thick acrylic then used it. it’s a very textured painting,the glass beads are very interesting and I recommend them to everyone else,I got mine at the range,they’re open back up now. Avoiding the foot is about the snails fight to survive and avoid been stepped on, I love snails and will move them to theside of the wall if I see them In the middle of the foot path as I really like them, I used to look after Giant African snails at the David Lewis centre when i went there.
