Days of Variety

Some of my exhibition at Mt. Jagged Wines
The last week or so in my studio has been filled with so much variety.
Our SALA festival is on this month so my studio is open to the public some days but I still paint whilst visitors look and I stop and answer their questions or give a demo as I explain something.
I had the opening of my exhibition at Mt. Jagged Wines on Sunday afternoon  and was thrilled that a floral painting was sold as I nearly always agonise over my decision on what to include in a show but I know that we all like something different so there is no knowing what subject could be a favourite.

Sold

I have also painted some new work ready for upcoming exhibitions and tweaked some paintings that I had framed but decided my 2016 techniques and style could enhance them. One of these sold on my first open studio day so I was pleased I took the plunge to add to what I already thought was fine.

  6. 'Contemplation' - the revised version - the results are amazing for the artist - when you narrow the viewer's focus - onto your subject. Love it.
