I am making the most of the sun and writing this in the garden under a big green parasol. The only thing on my mind is how much I'm looking forward to a swim in the sea after work! Normally I am consumed with thoughts about paintings and ideas but now, in a rare moment of quiet, I can think of other things. I've finished all my commitments; the 35 paintings for my summer show are being framed and I have made sure all my other galleries have brand new work. It's not often that I get a pause in my work, but I know it won't be long before my mind starts conjuring up the next project. In fact, I do have a project up my sleeve for the summer, but I am going to keep it secret until it is done. With no pressure I'll be free to do it in my own time at my own pace, and if it doesn't work out no one will be any the wiser.
All my recent paintings have been exploring the underwater theme that is my obsession at the moment, and I include a few here so you can see what I have been up to.
Happy summer everyone!
