Friday, 1st: Ripple

Happy July!!! I wish it felt more like summer but it hasn’t rained (yet) today, so at least that is something… OK, I haven’t actually gone out to take photographs of the water as I probably should do, but I am not going to let that stop me. The oval painting I began earlier in…

Friday, 20th: Cherry Blossom progress

I aways tell myself just will allow for a lie in on Fridays, but that never seems to happen. It isn’t so bad though, at least I can get in some painting before work. The feedback from my assessment stated I should consider to be more abstract in my approach as this will give a…

Happy Easter all! Enjoy your chocolate and time with loved ones (in that order hehe). Here’s a piece which is a little different from my norm. A little something for someone who is leaving at work; the seaside sunset here in Aberystwyth.
