Hi Ruth, (and Ruth’s blog readers),
– Here’s a little up-date about myself, and a few recent photos (as requested from Ruth)…

Two weeks ago I was the invited judge and Guest Artist for the Otago Art Society’s “Abstract Audacity” exhibition at their Art Station Galleries, Dunedin Railway Station. OAS President, Jenny Longstaff, took the two photos of myself…

As for recent creative work, my ‘school holiday’ has mostly been occupied with the necessity of framing existing pieces done last Summer, mainly the woodcut print series “Peacelight”.

However I did take the time to respond to Ruth’s poem “Roses by O’Keefe” and have produced two new works on paper titled “ Rose”, and “A Rose dreaming – of being a Lady in Love”.  They’re done in a similar medium to my Landmarks series; which is conte and pastel drawn over watercolour.

Last month I completed a number of ongoing watercolour paintings, some from the ‘Ripple-Land series’.  Here is one of them:

I’m looking forward to the approaching Olveston exhibition, and grateful to Ruth for inviting me to participate. Then you will see my response to Ruth’s poem, ”Roses by O’Keefe”.
