I can’t always update you on what I’m doing day-to-day, but I’ll do my best to keep you informed of what I’m up as often as I can. For example, my paintings are often time-consuming and so changes are subtle and slow. Nevertheless, just to keep you hooked on to my fascinating website, here’s what’s going on now…
- I have started another major painting called ‘Transition’ which is going slowly but well. It’s an urban landscape that’s all about a transition – in at least two different senses. It’ll make sense when you see it!
- Following a recent discussion with a fellow artist who gently criticised me for spending so much time on my detailed landscape paintings I will soon be trying to do some affordable paintings that will be completed in a shorter time than my major show pieces that most people now know me for. Don’t expect cheap little decorative paintings, but do expect some smaller high quality paintings that are packed full of atmosphere at prices that most people can afford. (I am also doing this in response to some health issues that are currently hampering my major projects)
- I have recently finished a painting called ‘The Calmness of Certainty (1)’ (see gallery 1 on this website). As the title implies this will be the first in a series of contemplative landscape paintings on the loose theme of the effect of nature on our mood and wellbeing. Watch this space!
- My medium-to-long term aim is to have an exhibition of my best recent work in a gallery, and the search for this gallery goes on. I want to show the work in a good location and somewhere that I can trust and that is reasonable with their financial terms. Too many galleries have a dog and lamppost attitude towards artists and I am hopeful that wherever I show my work can be the start of a constructive and mutually respectful symbiotic business relationship. If any owner of such a gallery is interested in this then please contact me and make an appointment to see me and the work for themselves
I will be posting videos about my work and other art here later, but meanwhile, in case you’ve not seen it, here is a little film based on my photographs taken in Poland in 2016. This is not about art. WARNING – this does contain some upsetting images:
