Hi everyone,

Happy New Year 2017 to you all! :-)

I am starting to work on new paintings but find that I am a bit sluggish.
January is always like that though with its dull, grey light and after Christmas there is always a bit of a low after the festivities. I find my art is influenced by my mood but it is a great expression of how I feel and a good outlet for creativity.
I didn't mention before but I am a collector of sea glass, pottery chards ('chaney') and driftwood, also some found objects on our local beaches and I intend to explore using these in some of my artwork at some point.
Yesterday I put down some textures with paste and I am waiting for it to dry fully before proceeding.
That's when the fun begins as I love the process of the making of a painting.
I hope you will stick with me following my posts for 2017 and feel free to comment at any time.
Once again, I hope you all have a happy, healthy and generally a very good year! xx
