I have started a new journal, this time it is not a moleskine, which has sort of freed me up from having to make ' moleskine' work..... I think I am getting all the colour and fantasy out of my system now, so that i can go back to making some better canvas paintings soon.....this book, journal is really just something I have on my lap in the evenings to doodle in, I hate to say it but its like art therapy, the colours make me feel happy, the story is coming bit by bit so I just draw what I want to draw. I expect as soon as the sun starts shining I will drop this project and get back into my ( hopefully warmer ) studio.

another in progress, 3' x 4' canvas again.....I am looking for a wow piece, something that will catch the eye in my exhibition in May, its being held in a quite dark museum space and I want something to get people over to have a look at the rest of my work. I am having some difficulties with the theme, because , oh dear I feel like I want to move away from horses....they aren't inspiring me as much as they used to but the exhibition is called man,horse and myth, so at least for this batch of work I am going to have to carry on with them.......this one is a sun horse...

update...I have completey ruined this, its now destroyed aaarrrggghhhhh !!!
