The world’s most boring blog post. Valuable tools.


I believe every artist’s studio has an ltem that many people might consider as junk, and that the artist might consider as a valuable tool. I have several battered and stained pieces of wood that I would greatly miss if I threw them out. I use them as cutting boards, and as paper weights.

Long Series #1297. The UK box.



This is another Long Series painting from the UK box, and it’s one that came back with just a few areas of colour that were laid down by Andrew Parkinson. I’ve added a transparent layer on to which I’d rubber stamped a face, and included my area of pattern. Patterns do connect!

Have you met…Alice Brown?

Introductions can be wonderful things. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends through an introduction. Sometimes you can be introduced to your new favorite food, television show, or artist. I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists.

The artist I’d like to introduce you to is the painter Alice Brown.
