The painting is a memory of a pond I would walk to with friends when I was about 14. It was the edge of our world, a point already deep in Ruislip Woods that we rarely seemed to get past. We spent hours there waiting, before setting off to walk home. It was a friendship we had with a place, another person in the our collection of weirdo’s.
