And, you thought I’d finally given up painting?  Well, it has been a while since I’ve done anything worth sharing.   This is what is on the easel at the moment, a nice piece featuring a glass of spilled wine – – spillage without breaking the glass!  It’s a miracle!  A glass saved…although, saved or not, I can’t help but wonder if that bow had anything to do with it.  It’s a work in progress – needing much more paint!  Oil on cheap canvas,

The Christmas Card Project is drawing to a close. If you’re unfamiliar, a couple of weeks ago I got the brilliant idea of sending hand painted oil on canvas greeting cards to my friends during the holidays.

looking ahead…

As some of you may have noticed, I have this compelling desire to produce multiples in my work (i.e. [/life in the Matrix]: Anarchy, 2016)- despite the anxiety I suffer while trying to replicate same.  I’ll get over it, maybe not soon…  Here, it seems I’ve started in the middle as a matter of convenience…see those paint squiggles that look out of place?  Yeah, that’s my hand print.
