Welcome one and all to my 2018 blog !
Bit of a late start to the year, apologies, but I have been busy decorating my new extended studio space (mine till October this year, woo hoo !), as well as being knee deep in ‘post- it’ notes, planning for what is shaping up to be an extremely exciting year ahead :O)
Aim of my blog: To be fun, interesting & informative
The masterplan is to send you snippets of what Im up to, maybe some short videos of me painting (oh yes its all about me :O)!!!!) some of my painting techniques, share with you exciting trips or just general ‘arty farty’ stuff I think you might be interested in, or inspired by.
I really encourage you to drop me a line anytime, and I mean anytime, with your thoughts and comments on my ramblings or if you’d like me to cover any particular topics just let me know. Please drop a line to email@example.com
So briefly, ideas for my art career is bursting at the seams! Its great to have you joining me on my journey over the months to come – heres a bit of a taster of just some of the projects I’m hatching:
Exploring the possibility of combining technology in the form of virtual and augmented reality with my large abstract paintings…. Extremely exciting!
Feasibility planning for a small art business. A cunning plan I have up my sleeve – attending ‘setting up a small business’ course next week to get things going.
Teaching abstract this year – check out the new weekend painting course Improvers Abstract which I am teaching with Caroline Hulse. Starts in May. Come on you know you would love it!!!!.
Applied for a couple of National competitions along with 3 billion others but ‘you’ve got to be in it to win it!!’ or so someone said!!! :O) .. lets see what happens.
Arts Fairs & Arts Trails – I’m exhibiting and selling at the Reading Contemporary Arts Fair 21/22 April 2018 – would be great to see you if you can make it.
Severn Vale Arts Trail – 5/6/7 May 2018 – come and visit me at my studio – you can have a go at painting if you fancy it :O)
Just a few of my plans and activities I won’t bore you with all of them now as we have plenty of time to go into details ….. oh did I mention Im off to France to scope out a commission (HUGE 200x200cm) as well as starting to design a fabulous painting holiday experience in Bordeaux for 2019, check out the planned location Rural Gites … more to come………. Ill shut up now :O)
