Well the latest news is that I have been pre-selected for the Threadneedle prize exhibition with my 'Warhorse' painting!

Trouble is Warhorse needs delivering by 9th June and it's stuck at Royal Academy until June 23rd . Arrrgghhh! Help!!!

Lady with the fish. Painted

I have now painted the picture I was working on 'Lady with the Fish'. I used text to paint the sculpture itself and then other materials to create texture. This included, wallpaper, sand paper, fabric and then plaster. This was all worked over with acrylic paint and colour pencils. It will be on show at Delapre Abbey at the end of this month.
