"Annunciation: A Fleck of Now's Tomorrow"

Inspired by a poem called "Annunciation", written by Kirsty Gunn in her book, "44 Things: My Year at Home", during a time at which I, too was on a sabbatical, from my teaching job at the University of Dundee, this is one of a diptych of paintings. Made by drawing, embossing, imprinting and using collage, onto and into a delicately-layered surface of gesso and shellac, with flecks of watercolour and gold leaf, under intermittent thin layers of beeswax, in response to the poem and to the moment that inspired it.
