I know drips aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but there was something meditative about watching the paint slowly move down the canvas and create these lovely lines before I finished up yesterday.

Feels so good to be back painting after an extended break and I’m in my new Studio. I have space!!! Getting settled in and glad I have a few in progress from December to help me get back in flow.

Surprise, surprise! Some red surviving on this small painting. Think I’m subconsciously feeling the cold. Ever hopeful with bright light on the horizon.

Tuesday texture tour of today’s in progress. Dark and moody sky mirroring reality outside the window. Not sure about next step with this one, think I’ll hide it away for a couple of days, then reaction ‘oh, quite like that’ or ‘what were you thinking?’ will give me a clue.

Quiet Monday feeling. There was a lot going on in the foreground of this painting before today’s session, but seems to be a day for simplifying.

This one’s been brewing for a while and I’ve been spending time with it today while listening to the wind blowing against the window. Forecast said strong wind from the North North West, even sounds cold! So in need of a bright horizon. Always feels hopeful. Trying the frame on for size. Hope you find a bright horizon this weekend.

Brushing, scraping and carving, all in a days work. Good to be back painting this week. This small 20 x 20cm square is part of today’s in progress.

Ready, Framed and Delivered. Off to the lovely @tolquhongallery for their winter show opening next weekend; 20th Nov. Caught a glimpse of some of the other paintings when I popped in yesterday, looks like it’s going to be a great show.
