“Depression” Oil on canvas 92 x 61cm. This piece has provoked much debate; however, the process was cathartic and I feel that it will resonate with many people. “Into the Light” will be it’s opposite scheduled for the new year.

Today I have been to the framer and picked up the paintings and photographs ready for my show in Hailsham on the 8th December (just one week!). I am very busy getting organised and finishing off new pieces for the show. This is the triptych inspired by Scotney Castle in Sussex that I have just put the finishing touches on – it is a magical place.
Since my last post I have been working relentlessly on the new painting and I am finding the process a very positive one. Ideas keep rolling in as I go. I am enjoying painting entirely from imagination. My current dilema is how to transpose small pieces of written music onto the canvas in a way that isn’t messy!
Today I am trying something new. Today is not such a good day so I have started a new painting in Griffin Alkyd oils (because I have to get it on canvas fast!). Today I am painting my depression. I will post a picture when it is done. I will also post what effect this process has had on me.
