I think I might be getting better at this blogging thing. It’s only been a month since I last posted, practically a record for me.
In November I’ve been working away on commissions and Christmas makes. I do love this time of year. Painting a commission is always a challenge, but when it works out and the person who commissioned me likes what I’ve painted it becomes a real joy.
The problem with commissions is that I can’t always share anything that I’ve painted. So here are some paintings that I did for Lochcarron Gallery for November and for the Winter exhibition:
I’ve also been trying to keep up with my online oil painting course with Roisin O’Farrell. I’ve got so much to say about this course, it really has been thought provoking and pretty challenging too. Not so much the painting aspect, that’s been a lot of fun. However, what Roisin calls the “poetry”, that is something else. I’ll try and write a bit more about it next time, but I highly recommend Roisin’s courses if you are ever lucky enough to be able to take one.
