I love the subject of rooms and interiors and especially those with open windows.  For me,  the French post Impressionists are the most inspiring,  because of the play of light and colour, the detail of the rooms, the brushwork, seductive light, ‘la douceur’, the way the eye is led through the window to possibilities and the romanticism of the southern French light which was clearly intoxicating to the artists.  Some of my favourites are: Edouard Vuillard, Henri Matisse, Raoul Dufy and Pierre Bonnard.

This painting hopes to portray the sultriness and langour of a hot afternoon.  The sea breeze,  the woman in the room holding flowers, receptive, in a reverie, window open, birdcage open, perhaps alluding to a former containment or constriction which has now been released into freedom, into the blue.
