'It's funny because some names take weeks to come up with whilst this piece took me minutes, as I carefully mixed her greens on my pallete and the first brush mark was pulled across the canvas I just knew. Her name had to be 'Medusa' The beautiful misunderstood monster of ancient greek mythology. I put that name aside for the first few days, surely it couldn't be that simple? but as I began working on her waters, as I painted the first layer of foam that covers her foreground it was like someone was whispering 'Medusa, Medusa, Medusa,' over and over again. By the time I added her final marks I couldn't imagine naming her something else.' - Sophie Medusa is 60x80cm oil on canvas. She is signed on the back and varnished. Framed included.
