Hamish Blakely ~ Love letters to my wife
Hamish Blakely, British painter: - In much of my work, I paint Gail, my wife. This is especially evident in my latest pieces. These paintings owe their character and presence to her.

She doesn't appear merely as a decorative or passive pictorial element; she endows the work with nobility, nuance, intrigue and grace.

She doesn't appear merely as a decorative or passive pictorial element; she endows the work with nobility, nuance, intrigue and grace. This, in part, she does by making the poses look natural while showing some form of tension in the anatomy. There is also a sense that she is unconcerned about the viewer, cosseted in her own world. For an Artist, this has to be the finest definition of inspiration I can conceive of. A customer explained this far more eloquently, "You are painting love letters to your wife"..
