More of that Crow!

Regular readers will be familiar with my bouts of frustration over the apparent stagnancy that is my career. I'm constantly at odds with the very real need these days to not only be a competent artist and creative...but to be a self promoter...a businessman...and I'm making no excuses...I'm neither a self promoter nor a businessman...but times change and our personal circumstances dictate reassessment. honest appraisal is needed....and this man has been doing that. So today I've finished and delivered an application for a  job. I've been self employed since January 2006...and now it's time to take stock and to be brutally honest, make some money.
Next time I'll tell you a little about my forthcoming exhibition which I'll be hanging on Friday.

Hello's me!

 I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted here...Wirksworth Festival all done and now I'm preparing for a new exhibition which I'll be hanging a week today. I therefore have to produce some additional pieces to sell. Despite the fact that they sell fairly well, I usually grow weary of producing minipics. So after a pretty dismal tree and stars ( see bottom)...I've decided to try a few more familiar subjects echoing my larger pieces. This crow although not very colourful at the moment will be full colour with a suitably mysterious background. hopefully now I'll have more impetuous to  create more,
