I just did my taxes and it turns out that as an artist, I made a loss last year. I don’t mind at all; I made a living doing my day job, I made new work. You have to at least be making to qualify for a loss and “maker” is just about all I’ve […]

Catching Up I have had a few days off in a row this week and I was excited about catching up. I still feel woefully behind on everything but I seem to have felt that way for oh, about two years now. I’m starting to wonder if “catching up” is a rubbish and capricious goal. […]

I can hardly show you a bean because I am happily, busy working on commissions. So here are two peeks and then Beedell Coram in Spitalfields, which I managed to paint last week and is another piece of a bigger jigsaw. Head down time for me!

This week has been all about the feather. I have been lost in it. I love it when that happens. Spitalfields’ Beedell Coram gets the award for the best name. It’s coming along nicely. I am drawing London, oh yes I am.

Commission Commissions often end up prompting me to have a slightly new take on things. For some reason, I had never really thought of doing smaller versions of my botanical circles as requested by my wise commissioner but now I know that it works and I like making them. Good knowledge! Lino-Cutting I got some […]
