Friday review of work in progress from this week for NEOS21. Heading to make a cup of coffee before contemplating next step. ...

Starting some new paintings this week for North East Open Studios event in September. I love the first stages and layers of a painting; just getting the canvas covered without having to think too much. I like not having to think too much!
