This is one of my latest paintings. It’s based on a dream / vision I had many years ago when I was delirious with fever.  The hallucination was actually quite frightening…and the monster WAS scary. So this is me returning to that nightmare, and choosing to strip away the fear.  The monster in this painting is revealed by the moonlight to be a silly, goofy little thing, like when you think you see a monster in the corner, and then you realise it’s merely a coat on a peg.

We can’t outrun our demons, but if we face them, we’ll see that they’re really not so frightening after all.
