Last blog, I wrote of emerging from a 6-month dry spell with some colourful abstract works, including Boundless.

I’m coming out of a dry period, so challenged myself with a 24 x 36 inch canvas – no need to take things slow! My intention was to create a sister work for 421 Cornered II from September 2021. I worked with similar colours but an opposing motivation–I knew this work would be called Boundless.Continue reading “Creativity continues, with a few hiccoughs”
Thanksgiving weekend I visited the Marlin Orchard Pottery Show in Cornwall, the return of an annual show after the interference of COVID. It was a revelation!

Where do the time go?
Some months since last we updated these pages, with nothing much (personally) new in this time of changes. Planning shows for the Glengarry Artists’ Collective – details will be posted – and struggling with several canvases. Or, more accurately, with the way I’m reacting to the canvases. I’m attempting calmer and quieter paint applications. ByContinue reading “Where do the time go?”
