Unusual times

It is unusal times with a virus that is keeping us in lock down. Many events have been cancelled or postponed including my own.
On the positive I am able to work in my studio and hopefully when life resumes I will have so new work to show.

I do want to share a piece of music composed by http://www.duotonemusic.com A piece inspired by my painting now called ‘Slow Wave,’ after Duotone’s composition.

A work in progress

A work in progress!
My aim has been to to capture the feel of moving water.

 

From time to time.

Inevitably at this time of the year we are looking back at the previous year at the same as thinking ahead to the next. I am inspired by time’s linear journey anyway so it seems appropriate to to show something painted at the start of 2018 alongside the newest.
