Unfortunately the ability to write blogs is inversely linked with the amount of stuff happening to write about. I believe it is summer, I seem to have spent three months chained to the easel; not earning, not interacting, promoting or organising. I squinted out of the window a couple of times & noticed that the grass was seven feet high, it was raining, it was sunny, the tide went in, the tide went out.

As the Vysotsky exhibitions and openings approach the stress levels rise, the energy levels run low and I look forward with relish to that lovely release one gets after an intense body of work is complete…. not yet though! I still have one painting to finish, i had more in mind but there are limits to what is possible! I also lost a week or so to a nasty cold. fingers crossed that there are no fire call outs in the next few days, I really haven’t time or energy for all nighters and dragging hoses across mountains just now!
