New Year, New Resolutions - mine is to get much more internet savvy - but there is so much to learn and to do!
I am revamping this website to place items actually into the on-line shop. This is being done gradually. If you want to buy something
that is not in the shop it does not mean it is not for sale - unless it says sold of course! It is just that it is taking me a while to revamp while continuing to paint.
My paintings are also being featured in some other online galleries - like
Artfinder and Artonline ( Rippingham Art). There is no price differential between what is shown here and those galleries. These are just other outlets.
I am also going to blog more often on here to let people know what I am up to.
I am ( as is often the case for me!) moving in two different directions. I do like to have a series of paintings 'on the go' but also another series as a change from the first series! So I am painting a series which is really inspired by different views of
my local city, Manchester, together with a general theme of Reflections. This works fine for Manchester as there is so much rain that the streets are often reflecting all sorts of colours - Manchester is far from grey!
The painting shown is one of my
reflections series - a painting called Brollies. Available for £300 via my online shop, or contact me directly.
I am also working on a series of sea paintings, largely inspired by trips to Ainsdale Sands, near Southport. It is great to get out
and do some 'plein air'. Even if your easel does get blown down and your paintings and other worldly goods to go skittering over the sands - this happened to me a couple of Mondays ago! It does mean that I have some small 'on the spot' studies, with all the
great colour that comes from painting without photos - so now these are being worked up in the studio.
Some of the reflections series of paintings are now featured in my on-line shop.
