Well, it’s been a good week painting. One of those well-balanced weeks when i have had the opportunity to work on a variety of painting.
This painting, with the working title of “A Mother’s Love” is a big canvas that I have been working on for a few weeks (you can see it in the earlier stages below). I can’t explain how fresh this painting feels to me. It may not seem that way to the viewer, I don’t know but the whole process and the meanderings of the method of painting has kept me coming back to the painting in between working on commissioned paintings and other new pieces.
I also think there is a definate knock-on effect and the enthusiasm can be infectious from one painting to another.
Tomorrow is the start of the last art event of the year for me, the second weekend of the Parade Artists exhibition in Glasgow and the above piece will be on display to get the public’s initial reaction. I will probably develop the piece further and it is earmarked for inclusion at an event with Marcus MacLeod’s Braewell Galleries (formerly ArtDeCaf) for an event in Edinburgh.
UPDATE Please note that I no longer have anything to do with Braewell Galleries.
