Continuing the single figure theme a further painting from the Portugal 'series'. I'm toying with the idea of two/three figure paintings but I need to allow these single figures images to run their course. I also need the right entry point into two/three figure pieces. There is a painting by Juan de Flandes, an early Netherlandish artist who was active in Spain from 1496 to 1519, that is pricking my visual/emotional senses. I'm brooding over the image waiting to see if it will become a catalyst for some new work. We shall see.
