Rage

The last few days of our recent trip to France we spent in Rouen, where we lived from mid 2002 until end 2004. Whilst we were there, we collected about 30 paintings of my wife that were still hanging in the office building where I worked at the time, paintings we had left because she was not particularly satisfied with them. It was a pleasant surprise to see them again, and realize that for several of them that judgement had been far too harsh. This abstract, an early example of her more expressionist style, is a case in point. Glad we got it back.
