It really has been a strange few weeks and a friend commented that there has not been the same amount of new art appearing on the site.
I guess that this is indeed the case but I am still painting. There has been some personal upheaval including at the studio. I am working on several commissions at the moment, which I am thoroughly enjoying as well as some other new paintings in between .
Although I have been at the WASPS Artists Studios for 4 years now, I still feel
a bit like the “new boy” as there are many artists who seem to have been there since art began! A couple of doors along from my studio are the studios of Alasdair Wallace and Abigail McLellan. I am quite a fan of Alasdair’s work and Abi was a familiar figure around the building. She was wheelchair bound for some time. Abigail died suddenly recently at only 40 years old and although I did not know her well, I do know that I will miss seeing her about the building and that her death was a huge shock to many of the other artists.
I wanted to mention Abigail in my blog and there is an excellent article in the Independent Newspaper which is worth a read.
