In this place.

Reproductions here are not great, colour and tone are all wrong.
Always find it a pain to try and photograph oil paintings accurately.

This is one of my sister sarah called 
"Don't take me from my bubble".
It's a smaller painting than I would usually do.

I need a moan !

Ok so its been a bad year. I had a problem with some faulty canvas primer which cracked causing the paint to flake of the canvas which destroyed nearly 4 months work. I then spent the next 3 months trying to repaint those images only to get pissed off with them. My heart wasn't in it and convinced that the originals were better I destroyed most of that work myself. Was feeling pretty uninspired for a while after that !
On a more positive note though I got a couple paintings done for Blue Leaf Gallery to take to "Art London" recently and I am now feeling that buzz for work again. I'm itching to get cracking on a great years painting ahead.
