Sat outside the gallery one morning and I became aware that someone was behind me.
‘Excuse me Sir, do you mind if we film you for a section putting together for the BBC’s The One Show?’.
‘Not at all', what’s it about?
‘What makes us happy.’
Bemused, ‘If I’m not painting, I’m not happy. The only time I’m happy is when I’m painting .’ was the first thing that came out.
My old favourite is, ‘find something you love and you will never work a day in your life.’ a quote often attributed to Confucius or thereabouts.
Either way, they caught me at a moment of reflection having recently moved into being a full time artist seems to be agreeing with me.
Aired on 27 May 2019 BBC One, The One Show.
