newish paintings



newish paintings

A local gallery became interested in my work and asked if I was working on any new pieces.


These were made primarily for the Windsor Contemporary Art Fair.  

Another gallery space offered me some wall space in July 11 and a contemporary space in Marlow has taken the remainder of the work.

The comical room pieces are going quite quickly and out of twelve flags, I’ve got nine left.






What with the Royal wedding and the Jubilee next year, more flags please!

 Since September, I’ve notice that I’ve gained an extra tyre. It’s not a spare one for the board but rather around my gut.

Sleepless nights, mixed diet, lack of exercise and crappy weather is my excuse for not getting out more but here‘s some of the recent adventures in no particular order.

more waves


more waves

Over the weekend, I started to compile some images from my sketch books and wave image folders and it through up some great memories.  The above image was a sketch from a trip to Indonesia and below recent trips to Devon.
I put some photos on magicseaweed.com:

waves



Went to see family in Devon over the half term week and got quite excited with the surf. It was classic surf, cold but clean and only a few out.



On my return to Buckinghamshire, I found that an email had come to me asking if I would be interested to start making ceramic sculpture again.



So over the next few weeks I’m going to be creating some new sculptures and finishing some overdue commissions!

finally a day off


It’s been a while since I’ve had a day off, probably since the arrival of our wonderful and time consuming son. Welcome to parenthood and according to family & friends it’ll be like this for about another 18+ years!

I’ve had the occasional half day off or pinched a couple of hours here and there, so nothing really of note to blog about since last September. Over the next few weeks I’ll put a summary together and put some information up about current projects.

Tomorrow I have seven hours to spend on something fun, outrageous and dangerous….
