So being insanely busy seems to be continuing. I currently have artwork and architecture work coming out of my ears!

I did manage to make a start on the first painting of the year last weekend, but then it went a bit pear-shaped, or I at least had an artistic tantrum and then painted over a big section of it. It is currently sat in my living room awaiting another attempt at sorting it out, which will hopefully be a bit later on today.

I also sorted out the sketch designs for another commission that is ongoing at the moment, and one of those designs has now been chosen so that is good. That will be the next painting if and when I manage to finish the one on the go at the moment.

Etsy seems to be coming into fruition already as well, as within a week of putting all my mugs online I have managed to sell one. Whether this was a fluke or a sign remains to be seen but either way it is a good start. I am hoping to put my limited editions up on the site for sale next if I ever get some time to sit down and work through it.

Speaking of sales, Amorphous has left the building this week and been re-homed just up the road from me. I am very happy this painting has now found a new home as it has always been a firm favourite of mine, and brings back fond memories of Big Sur, where the rock is. It is also the first painting I ever entered into the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. I wasn't going to enter this year, but selling this, made me change my mind and keep trying to get in, maybe selling it is a sign? You never know when your time will come....

Wish me luck!
