Over a year ago, the removalists left a large piece of chipboard they used as a ramp to move the piano into our house. It had been sitting there, propped up against the wall for all that time much to Anna’s frustration. The frustration turned into rage when a strong wind blew the heavy wood onto her pristinely kept 1976 vermillion Gemini, scratching the rear paint-work. Swearing, she moved the wood off quickly, and her rage suddenly turned to inspiration. The two of us carried the wood inside and she brought out her paints.

Never having attempted such a large work (the wood is two meters across) she put on some music and joyfully began the first, then second layer. This was followed by a sponge layer to give the background some texture, before she started to splatter paint violently across it, and pour generous dollops over the surface, much to the concern of myself, thinking about our bond on the lease and the light coloured walls behind the painting.

After hours of splattering, drying, more splattering, agonizing, touch ups and more, the work was done, and after letting it dry finally, the whole work was turned upside down to its final completion. Within weeks it was sold for a generous sum.
