Posted on | December 22, 2016 | Comments Off on A day in the life : new work
I dreamed a dream, by the old canal. Acrylic on board.
New body of work based around solitude & space. Which for me is disappearing all too quickly in this ever populating world.
Thanks for a great year..

As it goes, I’ve been a busy painter. I’m continually working on the Way of the Pennines collection, (some of which are available at Lost&Found in Holmfirth). I’m also adding working on a slower scale with the North by Northwest collection.
There’s also another body of work in the making — based around the actual village-scapes of Saddleworth & West Yorkshire.
Get in touch if you have any questions.

It’s how I end my evenings | oil on board | 8 x 10 | £200
This is one of several new still lifes. I’m enjoying the space & light between things that do not move. Large spaces or the idea of large spaces have always compelled me.
I’m also going to add a collection of assorted comissions from over the years.
