The way I feel...

Apologies for those of you who check my blog regularly.
Thanks for checking in.
Life's been throwing 'curveballs' (as I believe they're called) so 
posts haven't been as regular as I'd like. Hopefully I'm backin the swing of 
painting a lot more regularly, now, but here are the latest three out of the stable:

'absolutely love, love, love the process of creating realist still life paintings, it is wonderful to try to capture or create a certain atmosphere using form, colour and a particular painterly technique (which can sometimes vary from diffuse to sharply focused in the same picture 
eg. 'Creamy Honeypot - By the score study.') 
And at last am slipping free with more impasto, too. I've noticed that certain pages on my blog have disappeared of late (to Lord knows where.) So here are some of the more recent works, again!

 I feel like  have been flying under everyone else's radar of late. Life has continued to be a bit busy. NOT so busy that I haven't had time to paint. Apolgies for the delay in posting anything new, though. On my most recent trip to France I went bananas and sketched and sketched and sketched. I decided to transfer some of these ideas into paintings that I like to call 'The bucketheads.'



 'Tea Bag (study)'

'The Bath' (Panel I)

...Oddly enough, playing around with these ideas has helped me get a little more of a grip on 
constructing realist still-life works...

Higgeldy piggeldy

At the risk of appearing vain (which, of course I can be) my technique is 
of late and at last moving lot closer to what I actually want. 
Finding the time to paint during the last couple of months has been difficult. 
The reward is that I'm forced to take more time to make decisions about how I'm putting paint down.
My life and work schedule's been quite chaotic of late due to life's 
constant challenges (the 'Higgeldy Piggeldy' of the title,) 
 and now it's summer holiday so I'm spending more time with the kids 
(isn't all that bad, I must admit.) Here's the latest out of the stable.
