I’ve been getting down to the big studio bigtime. I guess I’m a landscape artist now. I haven’t done a lot of pure landscape but I felt really inspired to give it a better go after seeing some of David Hockney’s recent work. I’m very happy with my effort so far. It’s not necessarily finished. I’d like to put some fauna in there. Not to mention some more paint. I conceived this as a diptych in which both paintings are quite different yet fit together as a single image.
There is really nothing like the feeling of finishing a big painting. Except maybe all the things that my painting is about. Getting out into nature on a good day … on my bike.
