105/365 – Fresh Leaf Growth in a Frame..

The notion of a small painting brought to a conclusion on every day of 2017 seemed like a good one on January 1st, one hundred and ten days in, the 110th piece is over there awaiting a little more attention before today comes to an end. The notion still feels like a good one,, i do see it as one piece of work in 365 parts, some of the parts are for sale, some of them are being hung on the streets for people to take, some have gone to galleries some are still here. Someone asked if the plan was to hang all 365 together at the end of the year, that can’t happen, some of the pieces have already gone off to Sweden, Spain, California, Wales, Italy, Yorkshire, Kent, Shropshire, some will be on sale at the Art Car Boot Fair, some at the next Cultivate shows or… This isn’t the only thing I’m working on right now, there are a number of larger pieces in production and..

The emotion of selling a painting…

The 88th painting of 2017 was completed in the early hours of this morning, the 88th day of the year, March 29th, unless that is I’ve lost count again, it is the 88th day isn’t it?. The 88th painting concluded and more fresh leaf growth and the notion of a smaller painting brought to a finished state on every day of the year during 2017. Fresh leaf growth and new layers growing on on an evolving piece of 12″ vinyl, now concluded – Acrylic, brush work, marker pen, spray paint, glitter paint and gloss varnish if you must know – an old piece of recycled unwanted 12″ vinyl recycled (or maybe even upcycled)

88/365 – The 88th painting of 2017, March 29th – “Fresh Leaf Growth”

These smaller daily paintings aren’t started on the same day as they are concluded, some start days before, some weeks, some are pieces that have been evolving for a couple of years, that piece of vinyl there was originally painted on in the summer of 2014 and has been painted on several times since. A painting ever evolving, it is now completely concluded and won’t ever be touched again. I know I keeping saying a painting is never ever finished and if it sticks around here layers will constantly grow, with this series of 365 painting concluded during 2017, they will most certainly not be touched again.  And like the #365ArtDrops of 2015, this is being viewed as one piece of work, a piece of work in 365 parts, a piece of work evolving and flowing throughout the year, a piece started on January 1st and running until December 31st (if that isn’t tempting fate), 365 smaller paintings concluded on a daily basis with parts of the piece heading of to all kinds of places, art off to California, Spain, Yorkshire, Manchester, Hastings, South London….

Some of them are being dropped, the 61st piece in this series of daily paintings was “dropped” last week. The “ArtDrops” are never dropped of course, they are always carefully places in considered locations, left hanging there for someone to take should they wish to. This particular piece was left hanging in a tunnel near Shoreditch Railway station, East London, last week. I expect that now the weather is getting better there will be a lot more #artdrop pieces being left in colourful places…

Sold one of my bigger paintings this morning, it is always good to sell a painting of course, paint does cost money and so does studio rent and brushes and food and well you know, starving artists and all that, always good to sell a painting, of course it is. Did feel a little sadness as I saw the message to say this one had sold though, grown rather attached to this particular one, it has been on the wall of the studio here for about three years now, I shall be taking it down and packaging it up in a moment, you do feel emotional attachments to these things sometimes – there’s all kind of feelings that flow around a piece of work, frustration, anger and sometimes very personal feelings revolving around the reasons you painted it and where you painted it and what’s in there along with the paint. A lot is committed to the bigger paintings, the ones that are worked on for weeks, months, years, the ones that are battled with, agonised over, fought with, that fight you….
