I painted these three canvases after Spectrum paints very kindly sent me some new tubes of oil paint. Sadly my ground wasn’t suitable and the linseed leaked into the support discolouring the painting. I painted over. However I am re-painting the main and to my mind most successful image below.
1985-8 London abstract work used as covers for The Weather Prophets band.
These the only three pieces of work this year and they were all submitted.
The selectors took the two drawings..have to work harder on paintings 🙂

Here the first coloured drawing from a couple of weeks back and a new three part 12′ x 4′ canvas.
This connects directly with my mid to late 1980’s work…..especially the Record Sleeve paintings.
Plus ca change…
These two canvases were painted in may last year before the Lady Bay ‘Moogee’ show. They were shown but in a hallway but many people may have missed them.
I did not put online at time as they been at my friend Stephe’s from last May until recently. I forgot about them when I submitted to the Open. They may indicate where I headed in the new sequence I will be working on for this year’s Lady Bay show. Again it will be at 117 Holme Road 🙂

I have just completed a complete archive of work from 1975-2000. 25 years of strange stuff indeed. In the process I found some images that had slipped the net when creating this current catalogue so here they are.
Here a watercolour form 2005 and two drawings from Egerton Studio in 2004.
All work on this blog is for sale.

These are the final dozen illustrations as delivered to James Elkins for his 2nd Edition of Artists with Phds book (Published May 2014). It enabled me to successfully complete my M.A. by registered project for which I received a distinction in January 2014.
My thanks to James Elkins for a ‘revealing’ experience although I maybe now know more than I need to about Fine Art Phds and their academic validity:-)
