Mark Rothko Residency, Daugavpils, Latvia. 2012
We were taken on a long bus journey out into the landscape, which was very interesting, and we had a picnic by the river. It inspired me because I was very affected by my arrival into Riga airport, and the sight of a completely different kind of landscape, and this bus trip confirmed my idea to paint from my environment.
