I have a varied, lively and lovely selection of new work - coming to my shop tomorrow.... This will be my last update of the year. (Over the next few weeks I'll be working quietly in sketchbooks, planning for next year and continuing with some writing projects).

So here is just a few of the new artworks for tomorrow's shop update and I hope you may enjoy seeing the entire selection.

Hello, a happy December Monday to you - it's been a chilly start to the month here, with a touch of frost each morning.... Many thanks to the artists and photographers featured in this week's mosaic.

This week I'll be updating my shop on Wednesday - at the usual time of 2pm - and this will actually be the last update of the year. I had planned to update next week, but having considered my commitments and energy levels, I have made a decision to focus on this week and then consider work for early next year. Thanks for your understanding.

So this week I'll be offering an eclectic mix of new original work and I hope you enjoy taking a look. If you live outside of the UK please consider the possibility your package may not arrive before Christmas, but I am as always happy to send worldwide. Also please note I am not reserving any new work - as we are close to the festive season and this is my last update of the year.

Tomorrow I'll show here a small selection of new work. Have a good start to your week.

new work

Here's a further look at just a few of the artworks coming to my shop tomorrow - as I said in yesterday's post this is the last 'big update' of the year and so I am adding an eclectic mix of work (there will be two smaller updates in the first two weeks of December).

stacked cups and jug on printed cloth

a still life work, acrylics on Fabriano paper - 'stacked cups and jug on printed cloth. I am aiming toward making still life paintings that have an expressive feel with layering and texture. Working this way requires a great swoop of energy, but when the moment comes: I go for it.....

trees book II

In the past few weeks I've started a series of 'tree works' - these are painted on folded paper, to have the feel of a book, (yet would be best displayed framed flat). These tree works are responses to my walks in local woods and again are about energy, colour, and expressive mark making. I'm adding two of these tree works to my shop tomorrow. I anticipate working on continuing with this series as we move through winter and into spring, perhaps revisiting the general ideas, every so often....

gouache works

and a further selection of gouache works on Fabriano paper - various sizes - there will be a good selection to choose from.....

so just a few of what I'll be adding to my shop tomorrow, 2pm UK time. I hope you may enjoy seeing the selection. And thanks always for your interest.
