new work

Here's a further look at just a few of the artworks coming to my shop tomorrow - as I said in yesterday's post this is the last 'big update' of the year and so I am adding an eclectic mix of work (there will be two smaller updates in the first two weeks of December).

stacked cups and jug on printed cloth

a still life work, acrylics on Fabriano paper - 'stacked cups and jug on printed cloth. I am aiming toward making still life paintings that have an expressive feel with layering and texture. Working this way requires a great swoop of energy, but when the moment comes: I go for it.....

trees book II

In the past few weeks I've started a series of 'tree works' - these are painted on folded paper, to have the feel of a book, (yet would be best displayed framed flat). These tree works are responses to my walks in local woods and again are about energy, colour, and expressive mark making. I'm adding two of these tree works to my shop tomorrow. I anticipate working on continuing with this series as we move through winter and into spring, perhaps revisiting the general ideas, every so often....

gouache works

and a further selection of gouache works on Fabriano paper - various sizes - there will be a good selection to choose from.....

so just a few of what I'll be adding to my shop tomorrow, 2pm UK time. I hope you may enjoy seeing the selection. And thanks always for your interest.

Hello, a happy Monday to you - last Monday in November and a chilly start to the week here. Today is my son's birthday (16!) and so I am a little late posting today due to eating birthday cake..... Many thanks to all the artists and photographers featured in this week's mosaic. Please do follow links to discover more.

This week - I am updating my shop on Wednesday at 2pm UK time - and this update will be a bumper one. My last big update of the year! There will be a good selection of new artworks on paper and i hope you may enjoy taking a look. There will be two smaller updates on December 7th and 14th.

Advance notice: I have now decided to temporarily close my shop from 24th December until 1st January. I'll be updating my shop again in early January - but quite frankly I can't think about January just yet!

So this week - as well as updating my shop on Wednesday  - on Thursday I shall begin a poetry project. From December 1st to December 23rd I'll be posting each day a small poem to my writing blog nevering. So if you fancy it, do consider looking out for a new poem - or, of course, you could read the collection over the holidays..... This is just a low-key project that I hope a few people will enjoy reading. I'm doing it as a way of sharing my writing and image-making.

Tomorrow I'll share with you a further selection of new work. Have a good start to your week
