Update 2014

It takes a while to regain momentum after a show, but finally I'm picking up speed and planning on exhibiting my new offerings in July 2016.  The last show was mostly figurative with this one more landscape focused.  I want to create some open less structured works with colour being the driving force. I want big skies and open space, I want the excitement of the colour to drag the viewer deep into the picture revealing more aspects the longer it's viewed.  Pretty ambitious but with any luck I can pull it off.   Watch this space for updates.

My Studio

We built the studio on early 2011 and finally its up and running properly. 

I have a good amount of space to work in as you can see, although I do tend to work on one easel. The rest of the space I use to place art, so I can look at paintings I am working on and think about where to take them. 

I have a long bench next to the  easel on which I keep all my paint and tools. It's organised in a way though it may not look like it. 

When I paint I listent to music. My pet whippet comes in and sleeps there on the floor, especially in summer when the concrete floor is cool.
