Back to the studio with some new painting. It’s been a crazy old month. I’ve been creating art but I have not been doing much in the way of blogging. I’m playing catch up after Oxford art weeks, Bucks Open Studios, a visit to Manchester… and another event last week which I can’t share at the moment but will when I can. In the meanwhile you can have fun speculating. Onto the new paintings, this one has a distinctly abstract feel. So I thought we could play a game. All masked and with a cling film layer.

Please email a jpeg to firstname.lastname@example.org with a description about how and where you found it! Please note they must be REAL photos (no photo-shopping). Artwork in unusual places is fine.
