Hello, World!

I just HAD to show you my Angel Mouse, as it looked this morning with this angelic halo 🙂

Seeing it in this frame, I'm always reminded of some precious icon, so this morning's sunshine brought it all together!

Until next time 😉

I'm pleased to announce the SALE of 'The Wanderer'! If you haven't already heard, I'm selling a few older pieces from the Studio archives at bargain prices. These Works have never had prints made and most have never been seen before this sale. The work is offered on a strictly 'First Come, First Served' basis. So... if you've been thinking of treating yourself this January, head over to the site and see for yourself!

Happy New Year!

Here's Part One of a new (and highly Occasional) Series...

1. "How to Bypass Confusion".

If you've seen my recent posts, you'll have seen glimpses of a new, large-scale work. If it feels like this has been dragging on for months at this point, spare a thought for the lonely artist: for IT HAS!

Recently, a milestone was reached, in which I finished the last of a series of key characters, only to realise that they'd become a LOT grander & more flamboyant along the way.

Which meant I then had to improve the first of them, in order to 'balance them out'...

Which had the side-effect of knocking some perspectives out of whack...

Which led me to consider throwing the bloody thing out of the studio window! At that point, I'd been staring at it for so long, that I'd lost my own perspective.

So...

If I've learnt anything over the years, it's this: If in doubt, Start Something New!

Overcome your frustrations, by starting something else and have THAT bring NEW problems to the party... Pretty soon, you'll be so annoyed by what's needed to get THAT right, that you'll happily revisit the older problem, in pursuit of an easier life...

Part 2. 'How to Repair a Broken Canvas' will no doubt appear shortly..!

In the meantime, here's the 1st sketch of that new work. Can you see how the Hare has been cut out of something else & taped into place? You've no choice but to 'Cut & Shut', if something isn't working. As an immediate way of mocking-up a composition, it's a lot quicker than trying to do it digitally!

Hope you like it 😉
