    “Things can just fall into place when I’m making a painting. Occasionally when I’m walking the dogs round a corn field near our house I see a man putting out his decoys and looking like he’s having a very good time. It puts me in mind of the old homestead corn fields where I grew up, and how you’d come across a hunter from time to time, or a turkey buzzard picking at their leavings.

     

    Leather and brass are always fun to paint, especially as fall comes round. I found the decoys at our local market and, maybe be- cause of our walks, I liked the idea of them for a painting. They’re old fibreglass and handpainted. The modern ones are more realistic but I like this half-shell, worn-down appearance and the craft that went into mak- ing them. They make me think of a nice day spent outside with a tough target.”
