You know that famous Matisse painting that took him years to paint? yes, that one 'La Dance' with the figures dancing in a circle? it was part of a series that he painted about the muses. He did many, many trial paintings before he got it right - the perfect balance of colour, of movement, of life.


Well I thought it would be fun to use the idea with the dogs I see playing on Poppit Sands, where daily they fully embody La Dance and La Joie de Vie





I often think of the many paintings and prints that have gone from my hands into the homes and hearts of others. And how the simple pleasure I have had in creating them continues in another person’s life and home. And then I think, it’s not a bad occupation, it’s perhaps one of the best jobs in the world, to share these simple pleasures.
