I may have finished this series of abstract on paper paintings for now, as I would like to get back to using a more robust support, like canvas or board.  This particular piece has not yet cured, so it is still a bit rippled and wrinkly, it will settle down eventually and be completely flat.   However, I need to start preparing a body of work that I hope to exhibit and hopefully sell 🙂 in the spring/summer (not sure where yet).

I would just like to say thank you to everyone who visits this blog and ‘likes’ or comments on my work, it is very much appreciated and if I don’t automatically go to your blog and like your work it’s not because I’m a cow, it’s perhaps because I got a bit busy and didn’t have time.  I look at all the blogs by the authors who visit this site and all of them are spectacular.  I feel really privileged to have such a strong, experienced and talented ‘peer group’ of people who regularly make the effort to pop by here and look at my work  – thank you all very much!
