Rainbow Warrior - 37

Gradually managing to block in the sky...not sure I intended it to look like this, but hey!'s looking satisfactory. It's a shame that I'm losing touch with the blogging world at the moment....and if as a regular reader of this page, you're one of the dear friends of years past, I can only apologise... Face book seems to be all consuming... The truth is my life is changing...evolving...I find myself standing in unchartered waters...not always a pleasurable experience, but certainly one's eyes have been opened..and currently I'm at a happier and more peaceful harbour than I've enjoyed for many a year..unfortunately this means certain factors contained in this piece have changed their significance...( always a danger when a piece takes up to 6 months to complete!) .But as always...every picture tells a story...and this story is mine...and it's being written with each dot and day.

Rainbow Warrior - 36

Today's progress involved the clouds...I've deepened the shade of the sky behind my head to highlight the star. I have also finished the hair!

Rainbow Warrior - 35

I have hair!! seems ages since I last posted here. So much has happened since last time...not least of which was ( for me ) probably one of the best Wimbledon finals weekends ever. I had two of my favourite Ladies in the final which was won by French number one, Marion Bartoli, and of course Andy Murray became the first British winner of the men's title for 77 years! what a great time I had!! 

I've also been in hospital for a planned operation from which i'm recovering well. spending time working has beeen the one thing I've been able to do, so I've put time in to give the back ground a little more substance. the photo below shows the ares immediately behind me over my shoulders is mad up of a graded layer of  purple then red and then light blue. The overall density of this area will be adjusted at a later date as will the addition of yellow ochre.

I've also been looking for work...a few good leads have surfaced then been swept away. It seems that my boss is guiding me continually towards making my living with my talent. To that end I received an unlooked for contact which has come good...more about it another time, but it means I have an opportunity to join with other artists in my home town to take part in art/craft/ makers fayres on a monthly basis. The journey continues!
