The Party’s Over…

Artistic New Year

Well. it’s Hogmany and not only another year, but the first decade of the millenium over already. Can it really be ten years ago that we were all worrying about the millenium bug, planes falling out of the sky and partying like it was 1999?

This decade, for me was marked by massive change. If anyone had told me ten years ago where I would be in 2009 I would not have believed them. Whatever the noughties held for you may  you have a fantastic twenty ten.

Through the holiday’s I have painted in the studio whenever I have been able to. It has been strange entering the building and a customer who visited commented on the eerie feel. Cafe Sejuiced is closed (see pic above). and there is a real “end of the year feel”.

Personally, I am enthusiastic about the New Year and have some really exciting things lined up including work with Braewell Galleries and I will be continuing to exhibit at Park Gallery amongst others: watch this space.

So, Happy New Year from this artist to you and yours.

Goddess Artwork

Big Females On Canvas

I am enjoying working on this new Goddess painting so much that I thought I would upload her larger scale than normal size and let some of the detailed brushwork show. This is the artwork rferred to in yesterday’s post based on a a girl I “know”.

If you read the blog a few months ago and at another point earlier in the year you will know that I suffered “block” a couple of times. It really is frustratig when this happens and sometimess you just have to wait for it to pass. At the moment I am in a period of growth it seems which after the less energetic painting spats I have had, really feels fantastic.

Also, today I took delivery of two of the largest canvases I have ever bought at 3 feet x 5 feet and I just can’t wait to get started working on them. In saying that, I have no idea at the moment what I intend to paint on them.

I have the Artist’s Christmas get-together at the WASPS Studios tomorrow. Crash helmets ready…..
