If you at all familiar with my work, you will know that I keep returning to the sphere as a focus and inspiration. When it came to naming this painting, I looked for synonyms for 'sphere' online, and one that came up was 'big blue marble'. I'm not entirely sure why this appeals to me so much, it just does does (when I thikn about it, perhaps because I used to absolutely love marbles of all colours as a child, feeling that each one somehow contained a little magic).
