Oil on canvasEnduring, 2022H30 inches W42 inches

This was the first painting I finished after moving back to Scotland from London, where I have spent the past five years. After feeling unable to work following a recent sexual assault, I decided not to plan the first piece I attempted but to allow my feelings of returning home to guide me and create a piece that reflected how I felt once able to reclaim the ability to work again.
