Long time no post. I trust all the bloggers out there are in good spirits.
I’ve been active. Some of that activity has taken me to & from the canvas. However there will be more correspondence through September & October.
Here’s some recent sketchbook work thing ahead for work next year:
Also some drawings from hospital visits:
…and some flowers that have grown by my front door all my life:
Stay well & see y’all soon.
Resolutions!? Fahk that. It’s the year of the stumpy pencils and “How did I get through all that process Cyan & Cadmium Red?! The good shit & not the cheap shit – glad it’s finally gone & I can start prepping my canvas with the quality stuff I bought in October!?”. Prep that canvas with the new techniques, draw out & plan your ideas until they’re easel tight & relax & paint & enjoy & fear not staring into the void because you’ll be too busy Jack. Serious man. This is for you. John Cheese reiterates what I told you you were finding out. It’s gonna be cool bach, trust me.
Enjoy the year painters & pigment lovers, you’ve no more excuses left but you are chock full of unused ideas.
Wela ti gyda gwaith newydd.
…my favourite John line:
Happy new year fellow bloggers of the post-New Year’s Eve hangover.
Studio sounds. Getting back to it. I guess you’re doing the same.
Many thanks to everyone who’s been in touch over the last two months. Approaching Yuletide it is customary to get reflective, hammered on quality ale and talk a load of tosh to people who are doing the same. I won’t be doing that. …yet. I’ve been working on our jewellery website:
..and had my stretchers delivered so painting, at last!, looms like a slab of mutant chocolate cake.
