The term 'weather eye' came to my attention in the context of a questionnaire that is used to measure stress levels in individuals who are in frontline occupations; those who may be experiencing trauma.

It means to keep a watchfull eye on things, which for for me is part of an artist's job. We are mindful of the things which others may not have the time to be.

"Still life paintings instill a feeling of well-being, no-one knows why" - I don't remember where I read this, but it stuck with me.

A still-life arrests little moments in time and I see it as a kind of antidote to our current experience of the world.
