Hello. I've been explaining my current artistic focus in 2020, and why I'm not exhibiting at all (even when the virus permits it, as it hopefully will).
I'm currently hidden away in my artist's garret obsessed only with making art – to the exclusion of almost everything else.
There's the occasional trip into the countryside to sketch or paint, but otherwise I'm a bit of a recluse right now.
Coincidentally, I planned to do this in 2020, long before any virus was on the horizon. I felt my art had got to a stage where it needed concentrating on intensely, for at least a year.
There's a lot of false-starts, experimenting and mucking it up a fair bit, so don't be disappointed when I don't release a lot of new landscapes
This is the thing about creating art. It's not a predictable production line churning‑out endless variations of the same thing – or at least, my art isn't.
So this is why there's very little on my social media, no exhibitions planned and my galleries are waiting for more supplies.
Be assured though, I'm still making prints and paintings, despite the impression at the moment.
