Cosmic Womb 22/05/20
As well as trying to get to grips with my cigar box guitar during this time of great change, I have dusted off my oil paints and given them another outing. Since I started in 1997, virtually every painting I’ve done has been an experiment in trying to find the perfect technique to create the perfect end-product. I’ve tried acrylics and gouache too, but they just don’t seem to do it in the same way that oils do; they simply don’t capture the vividness of the colours.
This painting I did today is probably the closest I’ve ever got to achieving my artistic goal. As you would expect, the photo does not do it justice; there is so much incredible detail that has to be seen close-up. However, I’m really pleased with it and thought I would share it with you all.
Stay safe and happy!
I’m recently back from a whirlwind visit to the breathtakingly beautiful Scottish Highlands. In a few days time I’m off to Cyprus and I’ll be gone for nearly two weeks, so I wanted to get a couple of blog posts in before I go. For your enjoyment, below is a selection of the pics I took during my stay. For some reason WordPress will no longer allow me to upload videos. Hope you like them!

The new CD with the updated artwork on the disc face is now available. I’m glad I decided to change it as it looks much better than the original. For reasons known only to Amazon, my CDs are still only available to buy online in the USA; any UK clients need to contact me direct.
This is my last communication now before I go away on my trip to West Wales. Will be in touch soon and thanks again for supporting my blog.
