Artist Statement

Four sweltering summers ago,

I sat in the hot little warehouse studio painting this.

 Jackson came in and said he could feel a tingling in his arm

- “should I call mother?” ... “I don't know? Perhaps, yes”.

We were to do a collaborative exhibition called “Reflections”.

It was to be Ray Moller, Jackson Gooch and myself.

We had picked the colour scheme tones of blue and ochre.

I lay the last strokes for the day, put away my brush

and thought to myself “I hope Jackson is ok.”

That night Jackson had a stroke.

This was the last time I laid brush on canvas.

This piece is unfinished.

I call it 'The last Stroke'.
