ART and LIFE and LOVE and STUFF

Its been a few weeks since my last post.....and my god its has got so cold!! Thankfully I have had a visit from the 'fire whisperer' so that has made a huge difference!


Plants are being bought and mad planting has started on this little plot. Permaculture is the name of the game here and I am looking so forward to the next few years when the garden has grown in a bit and you can no longer see the house....a private oasis - exactly what an artist needs to recoup and re-assess.


I am feeling the pressure to start work for my New York show.......I have so many canvas's that 'little house' is packed literally to the rafters!!!! So, needs must, and my new work will be re-worked canvas's ---- beautiful stitching from forgotten works will be painted over, re-worked and given a new life......




I am moving into abstract landscapes; thinking about the famous quote by the wonderful Pablo Picasso...." There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality."


There is no way, NO WAY.....I could never do a landscape with abstraction,...... I have tried but my heart is simply not in it. I have to paint my feelings.....how I 'feel' a vista not how I physically view a vista.......just the way my brain works......


So that is where I am heading work wise......otherwise, in other aspects of my life......still crazy and up in the air......theres nothing like a challenge right!!??!!
