I’m running a little late this week and so this is going to be a very short blog. I’m not quite sure what happened to all the time this week but suddenly it’s 21.00 on Friday evening! I’ve spent most of the week since Saturday, at the studio ….all except Monday when we went walking ….and Thursday when we went across to Edinburgh. The reason for this trip was to deliver some paintings to The Gallery on the Corner. The works include two of the small postcard size paintings, one of my new 30 x 30 cm paintings, one of the 76 x 23 cm paintings and two of the large 80 x 80 cm pieces. The gallery is increasing its wall space by opening a small café and so were looking for a little more work. So then, if you’ve never visited The Gallery on the Corner or haven’t been for a while, why not call in and see the work they have. For details of the gallery, click on the link at the side of this page.
The paintings I’ve just delivered include the following pieces:
As for the work I’ve been doing this week, well it’s been a bit of a battle ….and I lost!!! After five days work on one new 80 x 80 cm acrylic and pastel piece, I decided it was going no where ….and I painted over it with white emulsion …ahhhh! Oh well, that’s all part of painting I guess. It’s not the first time and no doubt won’t be the last. I think that the problem with the piece was the composition …if that’s wrong …well, you’re on a looser. In the past I would probably have persevered only to have scrapped it after several more days. I hope this means I’ve learnt from past errors …but I doubt it! Not all is lost though as I’ve also been working on a new 80 x 80 cm oil painting on canvas and thankfully this is coming on quite well. So then, hopefully in a week or two I can post an image of this piece ….hopefully!
