I have been neglecting my blog a bit of late. Sorry! After a lovely wee family trip to Lanzarote for New Year, I came back to the realisation that I have a Solo show to prepare for in less than 2 months. So I have been very busy painting and not so busy typing.
As well as producing work for the Solo I had a commitment to paint a large scale kimono for the Red Rag Gallery in Bath. It is now finished and waiting for a varnish and a frame. I am still not sure how to frame such a big one.
It was quite a task to paint such a heavily patterned kimono like this but I really enjoyed it. The brush work is much looser than my previous paintings - it may be something I will explore in the future.
