Seeking Solace (The Quest)

Oil on canvas 80 x 60cm

Otters are shy and mischievous. Their presence seems so elusive and too fleeting to catch a proper glimpse. To me, otters have come to symbolise absent friends and family. The idea of them provides solace and makes me smile. The fabric and threads that surround figures in many of my artworks represent their thoughts and feelings. So the otters shelter in the fabric.
