I have been terrible at updating the blog recently. I apologise for the lack of posts but I've been totally overwhelmed with work, which is pretty much the best thing in the world for me right now. Art is keeping me focused and sane while I continue to process everything that has happened since August. (Three months already, can you believe it?).
I have good days and bad days but creating art is one of the things that gets me through all of them. This week I'm trying to finish up the new pieces for Snape Maltings Gallery in Suffolk (this first painting actually sold before I even had a chance to take it to the gallery, but don't worry, there will be several more!). I'm also creating new collections of work for two other galleries and I have a backlog of commissions to finish over the next couple of weeks. It's exhausting but I'm so grateful that my work is selling well, and I'm thankful for the support of the people who read this blog, follow my updates on social media, send me the most wonderfully encouraging messages and comments, and very importantly, buy my work.
I'll have more new paintings to show you very soon and I'll try to post updates here a little more regularly. I also have some exciting projects to share that I've been keeping a little quiet about. Watch this space, as they say!
