Its’ been a while…

Oh yes! It had been a while since my last post… there has been holidays and construction going on all over the place and I have been leaping over hurdles left, right and center to keep the wheels turning. Sometimes, I feel as though my hopes and dreams to produce and sell my art are absolutely soaring with success and others, I feel as though these same dreams have been shot down or snatched from the sky. I guess it is the same with all businesses and maybe that is what has inspired this latest piece “Flight Cancelled”

This piece has been entered into the Clayton UTZ Art Award, which is held annually. It is exciting to be a part of this competition and I hope to be selected as a finalist again, as I was last year for this particular painting which then sold through that competition audience:

Launch Pad

Now available as a limited edition print through my ETSY store.

I absolutely love the simplicity of the raw linen background of this piece.

In other news, hold onto your goggles Aviation fans as there is talk of a hole new series of “Young Aviator” paintings to come your way! I am excited to launch these when I can and am planning some exciting props for this series including more goggles and aviation hats as well as shopping trolleys and smoke emitters … I will be sure to post mini detail pics of these as they are in production AND there might even be a video to go with it!

AND for those who have been patiently awaiting for the second part to the “Painting a black and White Portrait” Course, I promise I will finish editing the how to video soon, ready for you to complete this course. I have loved seeing what you have created so far and I am really proud of all of your efforts.

Farewell for now… I am off up the mountain for some exercise before I hibernate in the studio for a few more hours!
