'All the fun of the fair'

After finishing this painting yesterday feelings of excitement are beginning to stir. Its the thought of the new work going out into the world on its own and wondering how its going to be received. Even after all these years these feelings come back again and again...Its all the fun of the fair!
I am starting to write a new artist statement to accompany the new paintings. lately I am experiencing no boundaries between life and work, they seem so symbiotic so the perspective in this new work is a tool for drawing the viewer into the space so perhaps they can spend a short moment there.
This is quite a task when showing at the AAF as it can be so hectic and busy this is such a stark contrast to the space these paintings have been made.

Whats my title???

I have been working on my new collection of work for 'The Affordable Art Fair' Showing with Andrew Stark and along with some large canvas's I have made some smaller works on board which I have really enjoyed. This little one which is title less at the moment has by it's reception become the piece I am going to submit to the Royal Academy this year...any ideas for a title would be gratefully received.

a little LOVE

Tis the season to be loving!!
Its a really productive time of year for me so my heart is full and bursting, this thing I do is about the love of it...a life without it is unthinkable. It all does seem to be following the seasons and now the green shoots of the bulbs are coming up my creativity is rising with the sap. LOVE IS IN THE AIR............

I have in my sights
The Affordable Art Fair in Battersea Park in March and choosing a piece to submit for Royal Academy Summer Exhibition... all exciting stuff.
