This weekend has been a whirlwind of painting. I had two commissions to complete. One is a homage to the work of the amazing Peter Smith (with a few little tweaks by the clients request).
The other is a homage to Purseen for a very special little girl who is going through a very tough time. All my love and best wishes go to her and her family xxx
After a few weeks of mourning what was taken I’ve started creating again. I think what I’m doing now is better than that which I lost.
Please share this update with as many people as you can, especially if they are in or around the Bedfordshire area in the UK.
On Friday the 13th of January 2017 (ha! yes it lived up to its name) between 7.40pm and 10pm someone smashed my car window and stole the coat pictured and a portfolio of my artwork which includes the pictures attached to this message. My car was parked outside the village hall on Blunham Road in Moggerhanger. I am the third victim in recent months.
Police have said it is a long shot but if I can spread the word -you never know, my coat, leather portfolio or artwork might show up on ebay, at a car boot sale, thrift shop or in a hedge near you. Chances are slim but the more people who can keep a look out, the more hope I have that something may be returned. Who knows, we may even catch the nasty piece of work that did this and who has broken in to other cars on the same stretch of road.
Needless to say, the artwork is the most heartbreaking thing to have lost. Inside my portfolio included the first comic strip I ever had published, a portrait of my daughter and some old but cherished character designs from my video game days. Any help is much appreciated.
Definitely one of my better fairies so far!
I am loving the autumn colours at the moment. It felt right to paint a new fairy with lots of reds and oranges to match the glorious trees near my painting den.
I’m loving the face but hating the skirt. Still, that is what the sketching stage is for!
He is such a cutie patootie!
