I am reeling from the exciting news that I have been offered a solo show at Mark Borghi Fine Art in New York
I don’t have any dates yet, but I’m firing on all cylinders getting new work made so I’m ready
These are all oil and cold wax medium on 60cm square, 5ply cradled birch panels. Most of them don’t have titles yet. But they may relate to the earth, our place on it and questions about what happens when we depart. #ascension #realm #spirit #earth
2 new works each c. 40 x 60″ (100 x160cm) on linen

I am so delighted to have this painting selected for a group show at Mark Borghi Fine Art in New York
I think however badly its going (whatever ‘it’ is) , its best to keep going!
So here’s a mixed bag of recent work:
I’ve run out of supports again!

Its my last few days here in Wales for a while, I’m heading back home to Ireland on Tuesday, having been away for two months
While I’ve been away from my studio I’ve been making acrylic sketches on paper.
Today I added a final layer of oil and cold wax medium to the sketches, using just two oil colours, violet and yellow
Then I stuck them up on my bedroom wall with gum strip ,(that sticky backed brown paper that is used for stretching drawing paper)
I also had a great time browsing through some of Richard Diebenkorn’s sketchbooks in the wonderful accessible digital archive from Stanford
Trying to get a painterly, layered, rich, unfussy, not too ‘overworked looking’ effect with acrylics. Using a gloss gel medium. Applying with a squeegee. Layering by transferring onto and from baking paper. Very frustrating. Looking forward to getting back to my oils and cold wax medium in my studio at home!
