Last work of 2019/ Happy New Year!

Wishing you a Very Happy (remaining) Christmas Season!

I finished my final commission of 2019 in time to deliver it for Christmas; a double portrait of the great(s) Laurel and Hardy. (I recommend the brilliant film Stan and Ollie to anyone who’s not seen it)

This year has been a strange one. I have made fewer art works, struggled with commissions not going well, questioned what it means to be authentic, questioned my artistic direction and seen some marvellous work by other artists. Summer seemed to pass me by as I cared for my father who died in August.

Then I read Art and Fear (twice!) (by David Bayles and Ted Orland) and certain passages from The Artist Spirit (by Robert Henri). Wonderfully inspiring! I am ready for new challenges in 2020. Happy New Year to you all!

    I absolutely love it. I always zero in to see what all you’ve used. It amazes me all the little bits you find to use. Unfortunately in the US it’s such a throw away society that precious bits get tossed. I would love to branch out past the buttons and beads but not sure where I would find other pieces to use.

    I have a ton of silver and gold, plus ones with little flashy bits I have no idea where to use them. I keep hoping someday something will pop in my mind. If not I will get your address and ship them over to you. I have seen you use such things in crowns, etc.

    Happy 2020!!
