 Where’s the year going?

All of a sudden its May! the grey fug of January is receding again for another year….. (well  it is today – the suns out, birds are singing! but yesterday it was a monsoon…) Artweeks is looming and there’s a flurry of activity coming out of the Studio! This year I’ve got a selection of work on show again –  new wall paper series paintings, landscapes and ALOT of cows!!

In the grey fug that is January I’ve been painting Bee Eaters to get a little colour and joy in my life


! These ones were done a few days after David Bowie’s death and I think you can really see his colour inspiration coming through!

bee eaters - tribute to a legend

the year has got off to a slow start though with only a couple of paintings so far… I’m looking forward to half term when I’m going to closet myself in the kitchen studio and paint top my hearts content!


I’ve decided that I’m going to do a series of ‘Bee Eaters on wallpaper’ for one of my summer exhibitions.. I’ve been experimenting with backgrounds and trying to work out a colour scheme….
