I haven’t been just staring out of the window recently, but the last painting of Staithes was intense detailed work, and was all consuming for a couple of months. So it is good to stop, rest my neck, remember I have friends around me, and at least for a few days, pretend that there are things as interesting as creating an image.
I’ve started 4 new paintings: 3 small windows and a view of Sansend, and was hoping that they would be finished in June, in time for the Open Studios (it’s always nice to have brand new work to the visitors). I might put them on hold for a while, for I have now accepted 3 commissions. One of them is a simple one of Whitby Piers, the other two are panoramas, so I’m looking forward to exploring new hills.
Isn’t life just brilliant!
