Quite a lot of paintings got produced earlier this year in preparation for a show in May. The curator wanted 26 paintings and I’d only ever had a maximum of 4 or 5, so I panicked ever so slightly and got down to producing as many as I could, eventually coming up with 13 at various sizes, from tiny to enormous.
Here’s a selection of some of those.

EarthSkyMind This one’s really the star of the year, and the biggest canvas I’ve undertaken since this painting gig began some 11 years ago. It’s split into 2 canvases stacked vertically and measures 150×180 cm. Originally based on a phone snap of a kid flying a kite on Hampstead Heath somewhere in the ancient past, it went through various shifts back and forth until arriving at a place I was satisfied with, by which time the kite had become a jellyfish and the landscape somewhat abstracted.
