monoprint drawings - oil on paper

monoprint drawings - oil on paper


Hello, it's a sunny and mild start to this last week of March - and yes spring is here.... I sat in my little garden to eat lunch today, ignored the power drill/sawing going on in the neighbourhood and tuned into the birdsong.... I've been busy drawing and working on new ideas this afternoon.

Over the next few weeks I plan to continue on with exploring still life forms, line, colour and more.... I am particularly interested in monoprint making at the moment but also more experimental drawing and at the same time exploring colour in drawing - so that's plenty to be getting on with for a while. I'm also editing a small collection of poems with the hope of putting out a new zine - finally. As soon as I think things are really coming together I'll share more details here.

There's no shop update this week - and I'm taking a break from updating for a few weeks after this. My next update will be after Easter, in mid-April. I made a choice to take a break so that I may focus on new work at a steady pace and at the same time support my son who is revising for exams. As you may know I have a teenage soon who has autism - and revision is tough for any young person. Thanks always for your support.

I hope to share with you a post of sketchbook pages later in the week.

Have a good week and more soon....

still life wtih plate of fruit

a monoprint drawing - still life with plate of fruit

Hello, it's been a sunny, rainy, chilly start to the week here. I've spent the day painting and drawing, photographing artwork, cutting paper, sorting through folders and getting on with stuff. It's always a varied day for me, never do I do exactly the same thing over and over.....

This week - I am updating my shop on Wednesday at the usual time of 2pm. Expect to see a varied, lively, eclectic mix of paintings and drawings. Following this week's update I'll be taking some time to make new work, will be busy with various things (see my last post) and so will be updating my shop again after Easter, mid-to-late April. I'll let you know the date nearer the time. So if you have been thinking/hoping of buying an original artwork from my shop, and would like it to you for before Easter, then this week is your chance......

Thanks always for reading here. I know there are a number of people who do read, even if comments are rare - that's fine! Blogging, social media and online activity in general has evolved and will continue to.... I am prepared to write a blog post here twice a week or so, just so long as I know the visitor numbers are still alive - and they are actually increasing for me. Thank you.

I hope you have a good start to your week. More tomorrow.....
