This has come out well and will be put in the exhibition in May (The Silent Landscape).

I am now working on a new one inspired by Steven Heaton’s wonderful photo (he has given me permission). You can see it here

I’ll also be tweaking a couple of other paintings and photographing them. This happens sometimes – paintings are done, but one has to live with them for a while before the final decision is made.

Back soon with more updates.


The Silent Lanscape exhibition looms ever closer.  Today Natasha and I completed the designs for the posters, flyers and invites and sent it off to the printers.

This is the main design:

tsl-poster-jpgMy next task is to update my personal website.  That will be done in the next few days, and then when all the flyers etc arrive it will be distributing time!

Meanwhile the easel calls  – I’ve still got paintings to complete :))

As I work steadily through the body of work for the exhibition,  I get itchy feet for something different.  This is normal for me.  I love to have a goal to work towards, but I also like variety.  So I set myself a new standard to work to for the next 12 weeks.  I will work on a large painting with the aim to complete each week, and also paint small canvases too to keep me sane.  As it happens, the small ones help with the bigger ones as the ideas flow back and forth between them. As you know I also paint on paper and wood and recently stocked up my etsy shop , this has been great and there are still some to be completed, but I want to concentrate on exhibition work for now.  I’ll feel happier when I’m half way through (still a way to go yet).  Natasha Newton and I are working on about 25 paintings each for this exhibition.  We are very positive about it though, and for me its a great opportunity to break out of old ideas and put things I want to achieve down for real 🙂

 I now have 4 larger canvases complete (Four Seasons) and a few small ones to complement.  Here they are:

1. Golden Tree (6×6 “)

2. Copper Days (6×6 “)

3. Lean on Me (6×4 “)

Well thats it for today, keep coming back for more progress – I’ll keep posting new things every week or so. 🙂

There’s so much to do!!!!

But one step at a time, Natasha and I can confidently get it all done 🙂

Today my new deep, deep edge canvases arrived.  I’m starting with 4 of them –  30x30cm canvases –  and I’m currently sketching and planning the ideas.

Here’s the new canvas delivery:

And here is a sneak preview of my first painting idea – a very rough sketch of autumn birches:

The next stage is to do a proper sketch and decide on a definite palette, textural effects and composition.

Whilst this is all going on, Natasha and I are trying to decide on a theme title for our exhibition.  Thats proving to be quite a challenge!!! 😀

Once we have a date confirmed we’ll both announce it to you via our blogs.  You can find a link to Natasha’s blog in the Blog Roll in the left hand column.

Ok, I’ll be back soon 🙂
