Here’s a small painting that takes a long view. I’m fascinated by zoomed up views of objects on the far horizon –  the way the colours merge towards the blue end of the spectrum and the way the features flatten out and tend towards abstraction. The thick layers of atmosphere distort the shapes, which are often dimly perceived at the extreme limit of our eyes.
