I have had a really satisfying day – the first volume of Hanon’s exercises completed + my scales – no pieces today!  …. then the rest of the day in the studio- no emails ( many will be relieved !) or other office work – a lovely late afternoon walk and back into the studio to finish off – and stretch another canvas for tomorrow…..   when James Thrift, the Dorset MacMan visits to sort out the inevitable Mac problems ……  it aint a bad life!
RED MELBURY unfinished   65 x 90  with thanks to Bill Mills
I am really pleased and excited with this painting – it isn’t there yet – ‘but its getting there’ ( Robert says that’s Dylan and its It aint dark yet …….)  if only I can loosen up …….????
  Red Beeches oil/canvas  75 x 90 cm  This painting has been hanging around in the studio unresolved for a long time – I think today I finally managed to borrow something from the previous one and finish it …. yup – its done …..! Of course the solo show in Dorchester has been on my mind for months – now it is only 12 months away – a huge space and I don’t want any ‘fillers’ I want all important paintings – is that unrealistic I wonder?
Beeches on the Downs II  60 x 70 cm a little painting – I just like it!
