The year of the car park, growth left in Liverpool and…

Some growth left in a car park in Liverpool (it was there before Mr Turk parked his car), 2014 has mostly been about car parks, car parks have been far more exciting in terms of art venues and exciting events than the more “conventional” galleries. Rather pleased to say it looks like it will carry on with the 2015 Chinese Open happening down on Level minus seven of that gloriously brutal underground multistory car park in Soho, deepest West End of London. All happens in February 2015, more about it closer to the date…

New layers, fresh growth on three of yesterday’s canvas pieces

At this time of year,growth can spurt, painted growth anyway, today’s November growth before the light went…. New layers, fresh growth on three of yesterday’s canvas pieces. A painting is never finished until someone takes it away….

An outburst of afternoon gardening and tending to the leaves…. November 12th 2014 – More growth, fresh layers… well not so much an outburst, the gardening and the tending to the leaves never stops, more a constant burst than an outburst….

The need for colour and leaves in November….

Need some colour around here this dull November East London morning. Busy in my bunker preparing new pieces.  Here’s some leaf growth and a large canvas from 2013 and a piece painted in about an hour in front of an audience who just stopped to watch, out on Vyner Street, East London, one day when the sun was out….
