The challenge I set for myself was to convey two emotions - happy and sad- in one piece of art. All I had to do was remember a children's ward from my time as an army hospital medic to find the sadness. The clown's make-up suggested the element of happiness. I painted myself for this mission. I met my challenge to my satisfaction, but I stirred up some disquieting emotions among my family. "Quite Reflections" remains part of my personal collection.
