Revisited, Revamped, Rebooted….

It’s been over 5 years since I released “Splash” and, despite being asked almost daily to re-issue more copies, I have constantly resisted. Recently though I found myself looking over past comments on the piece and realised just how loved it was by so many people and the connection they had made with it. So rather than just re-hash the same image I thought it might be nice to revisit the idea and try and come up with something that captured that same sense of uninhibited freedom but could be seen as a stand alone piece, distinctly different from the original.

So, here she is…… a little bit older, a bit more dramatic, but still in love with making a splash…..

Someone asked me recently if I saw this as a follow up to the original. I answered,…” Not so much a follow up. More of an upgrade”.

Have been struggling with this monster for a while. Finally getting it close to something that I had in mind when I started, should get a final cut  shortly and it will be ready soon.

New Year…. New Work….

The start of a new year always brings with it an urge to get things done and pursue hastily made resolutions. I’ve used it as a method of inspiration to re-visit and finally finish several projects I’ve been thinking about doing for a while.

The 1st painting I have started work on is an idea I had some time ago which I call “No Grey Area”. Work on this is starting to come together and I should have a final cut shortly. Meanwhile here are a few working shots…….
