These two paintings were originally created in 2013. Looking back at them recently, I wasn’t completely satisfied with them. So I put them back on the easel, pulled out the paints… I liked the original colours, so I re-worked them using the same colours. This is the 2017 version.

Ces deux peintures ont été créées à l’origine en 2013. Je les ai récemment regardées et je n’en étais pas entièrement satisfait. Je les ai donc remises sur le chevalet, j’ai sorti les peintures … J’aimais les couleurs originales, alors je les ai réutilisées dans la nouvelle version 2017.
