It has been a while since my last post and although we have done a far bit of socialising and entertaining over the festive period, I haven't been totally idle in the studio either. I have been busy working on a couple of portrait commissions, but as they are both a surprise for the recipient, I am unable share them with you yet. It seems that almost every year ay this time we recieve gifts of preserved fruit in jars of varying shapes and sizes. I quickly whisk them off to the studio and they are not allowed back to the kitchen until they have worked hard for me :-) 'Preserved' is hot off the easel today. I am concentrating on producing pastels at the moment as I need to have a body of work ready for the 'Art on Paper' art fair in London early next month. Watch this space!
