Great news. My debut show will be held in London during the month of June, at the new Serena Morton space at Canalside, Ladbroke Grove W11. There’s lots of preparation going on. Here to celebrate, is a charcoal I did at atelier school a while back, with a leaf bikini and russet background added this evening on the computer.

You will see a nice empty space beside this pot with the small shrub in it. The space, or gap, is a kind of ‘Now What?’ area. A possibility, or a bit of waiting-to-happen room (rather than a waiting-room, which is often such a deadly space).
I’ve heard some people talk about the influential value of rests in music. Sometimes a gap can be a powerful thing, alive with the fascination of what’s possible (pace Yeats). Maybe it’s the place where our imaginations live.
It’s freezing in London. Too cold to go out, so Lemon the cat is keeping me company while I sit on the sofa and paint on my iPad. Supper’s nearly ready so this is fast work.
