This one of many I'm working on at the moment. I'm preparing
for the West Durham Studio Tour which takes place on April
23 and 24. This is not complete but the bones of it, its fundamental
structure, is established. I have ideas on how to close the deal,
but you'll have to come to the studio to see the finished work!

Very long time since I last posted but that doesn't mean I haven't
been painting. In fact I'm painting up a storm but too many are in
process. I've decided to post some 'getting there, sort of done'
works. This one is part of a non-objective where circles and
surface texture feature largely as subject matter. This 24 by 24.
More to come!

Sunflowers continue to fascinate people. Almost always the
favourite subject matter at my art shows. Vincent must have
been on to something. If you looked at this piece closely you'd
see lots of surface marking as part of the under painting. I built
the subject matter into the 'automatic' and intuitive markings.
