‘2 for Joy’ is now complete and cut from the board in the studio, so I am spending today catching up on some paperwork and arranging some of my giclee prints to go out to galleries in Brighton, Hastings and up to Scotland. Also preparing the 3rd piece in the series and working on some interesting commissions, including a new lightbox which I will be sharing soon.
Here are some pics of the finished work 2 for Joy with a couple of work in progress and detail shots taken along the way. The piece ‘2 for Joy’ will form part of a series of 10 works over the course of this year.
Also here are some pics from the launch of the new t-shirt available from Twinne using the piece ‘Seed of life’
Apparently there was a hiccup with the ordering system but you can now buy the Tee’s here
The original artwork is also available for sale.
A little more work on the piece 2 for Joy…

The huge smokehouse gallery overlooks the olympic stadium and its internal architecture reflects this strongly!

More work in progress from 2 for Joy – graphite on watercolour paper
Heading to the studio to continue work on the new piece, getting back to basics with some drawing both in the studio and at life class… yesterday’s drawing was a long struggle – but a good one. The piece will form part of an ongoing series developed from the wing assignment piece ‘1 for sorrow’ which will be showing at the smokehouse gallery from Thursday pv @ 7pm (see post below). Each piece will be an interpretation of the Rhyme 1 for sorrow 2 for joy… more information about this piece to follow.
