Spring in the Winter Garden

I really can’t make up my mind whether this is finished. It has got to the stage where the temptation is to continue titivating, adding a stroke here or a bit more just there. This can  mess up a painting. On balance I think I will let it rest for a few weeks as things…


What a week! Last weekend we put up our annual recycle exhibition in the Cloudhopper Gallery and held our Wearable Art Fashion show. To my delight later I sold a picture from the gallery and because this left a gap in our display I did another along the same lines called Wabi Sabi Blossom Time….

Still working on this portrait.

Having a fight with the hand here, not the easiest to do at the best of times but as I’ve adapted the pose bit and I have to somehow make it look convincing. It is a good job alkyd paints dry in six hours! I’ll try again later.
