Turn up the music and watch a short video of some of my early work and a few new pieces, nice and relaxing and a trip down memory lane :)

I am working on a painting that is a mixture of Yorkshire and Nuggleton, haha. It is beginning to build up now and I am really enjoying it.
I visited the framers today to drop off the Canine Chaos prints and I have chosen a burnished copper frame for Estuary with a slip frame instead of a mount, as I want this to have extra special bling when it is finally finished. The Acorn Gallery in Pocklington are going to take this painting, which is only right, as it belongs in Yorkshire.

The little red Austin Mini from my new 50's era painting is looking good and I am quite pleased with it. I am enjoying researching the fashion and the classic cars that will feature in this current painting. Head over to the Nuggleton facebook page for more images.

I have become good friends with the wonderful artist Danny Abrahams in the last few months, we are pictured here at The Acorn Gallery in Pocklington with 'Riverside' in front of Danny's work. He is taking the art world by storm but is still finding time to mentor me in new techniques. If you ever get chance to view his work at an exhibition, then go along because you won't be disappointed.
Dave and I are now the proud owners of two of Danny's originals and we love them to bits.

Back from the Cotswolds and bursting with inspiration from all the little villages, it has also helped me map out in my mind exactly how the follow up to 'Riverside' will look now.
I will be finishing 'Canine Chaos' today and then it will go to the printers to have a print run set up to be sold through GallerySales. 'Estuary' will be worked on whenever I am at my art club and I have started an acrylic canvas of Nuggleton at Dusk which is a fun sideline whilst waiting for other paintings to dry.
'Cricketers' is now available as a limited edition print from The Acorn Gallery and also as a greeting card from www.nuggletonart.co.uk
