New work complete-

 Woken by the storm-
Acrylics on canvas-
This painting started four years ago I left it alone in a 'dark room' for a while. Now it is 'better'-(it had some time to think...)
On the left Riitta Peirone, on the right Jane Hennesy. Jennifer Mitton was there too, but the photo
didn't work(sorry Jennifer)- They are all Fantastic Artists and Wonderful Friends. We have been painting and drawing next to eachother during life drawing sessions at Basic,  a few years now. So it makes me absolutely delighted to be part of this show! And today was the day of the 'hanging'- or some of it anyway-
There will be more pictures-

You are obviously all invited to the opening, with lots of yummy food and wine! It is on Saturday the 29th, from 6-9pm. Do come and say hi, the work is seriously exciting, it would be such a treat to share it with all of you!

Suprisingly, I am not mortally depressed... I am actually happy a chapter seems closed now. I am already thinking of what is ahead.
Which makes it all: much better.

Wow, looks good! Good luck with the opening, too bad it's a bit far for me to travel :-)

I like how you describe that it (the painting) had some time to think, and it is a evocative title too.
