I'm beginning to think I might switch to blogging on Facebook where there is a bit more interaction and therefore more incentive to keep posting.
So much is going on at the moment that I don't really know where to begin as each previous post seems like a distant memory.
I think I'll just do bullet points for now:
My work at the moment seems to be based on recurring patterns. This is not intentional. Looking at paintings from the last few months I realise that regardless of subject matter, repeating patterns seem to be the trigger that inspires me to paint. I have been writing down thoughts like this, as and when they occur. I'm hoping that soon I will be able to lay them all out, then cut and paste them into an organic mission statement to clear things up in my head and show me which way to go.
That was rather a long bullet point.
I have moved to a new flat and studio in West Kensington.
I have a solo exhibition planned.
I am concerned about the art economy, I recently joined a gallery that had been operating for 19 years. They just closed down.
I am rediscovering old mediums.
I'm looking forward to Summer.
This seems an appropriate painting to post:
