Seated Figure

New painting. On the blackest of Wednesday’s my computer crashed and my heart and soul were tempted to go down with it. Instead I took pencil, paint and crayon to canvas and created this. A day and much more was salvaged in the doing. Inspired by the work of that great Austrian Master Egon Schiele.

Teapot With Bluebells

Acrylic.

I like to make myself at home wherever I go. Tea drinking is a big part of that. Improvisation is often involved.

Where is the teapot?

She is painting it .

It was a very pretty teapot. Crying out to be painted. I should have waited for it to be emptied perhaps but none of that matters now.

New Paintings in acrylic.

Two new works I created this afternoon.  A5 paper, medium acrylic.

While I was painting it suddenly dawned on me that I am reaching the place where I no longer feel the need to justify or explain my lifestyle as I have almost always done in the past. It is good to be here finally.
