A lockdown challenge to paint a single simple bowl, not to hide behind a complicated still life set up with a myriad colours or disguise the ellipse with overspilling flowers or fruit.

I painted this at a particularly traumatic time when I needed to shut out the world and my worried thoughts through my painting process.   I was utterly absorbed in giving the bowl it's own personality, in letting the brush speak and evoking a sense of calm and tranquility - something  I was needing to feel myself.
