Art Update

I've decided to start working harder to be an artist rather than just complain about how little time I have to create. I have submitted a proposal for a local gallery to produce a show called "You Can't See the Forest", yeah it's all about trees but I figure - play my strengths.

I have one piece I'm working on, well one piece made up of 45 smaller 8x10 canvases that will be hung together to create one giant artwork. Oils again - I can't believe how much I'm enjoying this medium again - so it's time consuming but I'm excited!

This is a sketch of what I hope the finished piece will resemble:

Yeah I don't have anything better to do with my time!!!

I'll keep posting as I finish each painting....oh one more...I've entered a competition through the local electricity company with a theme of "Drawn to Nature" This is my submission:

Right then, back to work!
