Joyce Gunn Cairns

"Joyce shows how closely allied to feeling true drawing can be." Duncan MacMillan, The Scotsman, Oct 2004

Word as Bond, detail
Oil on board. I feel very close to this painting, not sure why. Perhaps it has something to do with my longing for intimacy while simultaneously struggling to protect my space. The woman is allowing herself to be held and yet is looking into the distance. Sold from The Smithy Gallery, Blanefield, which regularly represents my work.
