As I type the rain has started again - another storm is due. This will be my last post for the year as we are now racing toward the holidays. I have been reflecting on this year and have come to the conclusion that much of it has been spent straddling the line between realism and abstraction. I feel like I am at a border with a foot on each side like I need to make a decision on which direction to take. ( It occurs to me that part of this is a reflection of the influence of our political situation this year in the UK... It has certainly been a strange one.)
I know that in the coming year I would like to explore mark making in more depth and that colour might be making more of a comeback after so much grey and indigo (although that might just be a mini rebellion at the weather the last few weeks.) I think it will be a year of new ground and learning; I hope from time to time you will drop in and let me know what you think. So whilst some might think it a little odd to end the year on a stormy note I am seeing it as a positive - a clearing of the path to new and exciting things.
I wish you all a happy holidays however you celebrate the passing of a year, may 2020 be full of exciting opportunity, good health and happiness for you and yours. All my best wishes. Cheers!
