Very busy trying to avoid the fact that Christmas is around the corner. But now (which is a blessing) I have a commission to do in time for that unavoidable date. sigh. Better get cracking.
Heres a painting from the weekend. Trying my hand at 'plein air' work. Its rather fun, and a good discipline.

First monotypes! Thanks to the inspiration of artists like Belinda del Pesco I have finally had a wonderful afternoon of playing with monotypes.

The Twelve Sent Out

Acrylic on Canvas, 30" x 40", an ambitious project for me, so much fruit & veg in a hot shed, so little time! An allegory based on Matthew 10:5-6.
