After a very energising year, touring our show ‘Exposure” in Scotland, and having a great Open Studios weekend, I have found my new way of painting in the studio through high energy composition, first with the large canvas ‘Spirits’ which I showed in the group show ‘In Formation’ at Thames-side Gallery in January. Now I am working on The energy and buzz from trips to NYC in the past and the street photography I did there. It is a vision of a city from the past: full of pleasure and excitement. The first canvas has the title ‘Take the ‘A’ Train’. Now I am also working on some much more Zen miniatures – very small paintings in oil – just a bit bigger than a postcard. Quite different projects but somehow complimentary.
