I have had a really satisfying day - the first volume of Hanon's exercises completed + my scales - no pieces today! …. then the rest of the day in the studio- no emails ( many will be relieved !) or other office work - a lovely late afternoon walk and back into the studio to finish off - and stretch another canvas for tomorrow….. when James Thrift, the Dorset MacMan visits to sort out the inevitable Mac problems …… it aint a bad life!
RED MELBURY unfinished 65 x 90 with thanks to Bill Mills
I am really pleased and excited with this painting - it isn't there yet - 'but its getting there' ( Robert says that's Dylan and its It aint dark yet …….) if only I can loosen up …….????
Red Beeches oil/canvas 75 x 90 cm This painting has been hanging around in the studio unresolved for a long time - I think today I finally managed to borrow something from the previous one and finish it …. yup - its done …..! Of course the solo show in Dorchester has been on my mind for months - now it is only 12 months away - a huge space and I don't want any 'fillers' I want all important paintings - is that unrealistic I wonder?
Beeches on the Downs II 60 x 70 cm a little painting - I just like it!
