Now, technically this isn’t a before encore post…But it is my blog so I’m gonna blog like a blogger should.
More than a month has passed since the before encore 4 show came down. We had a splendid time – even if I can no longer eat or pay my rent…But that’s what an artist’s life is supposed to be like I guess!?! Luckily I had some old stretcher frames and some canvas loitering in my studio, so instead of crying over my desperate situation I turned to work: after immersing myself in my friend Jonathan Kemp‘s amazing book London Tryptich which I strongly suggest you order NOW ( .http://www.amazon.co.uk/London-Triptych-Jonathan-Kemp/dp/0956251536/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1279023556&sr=1-1 )..and here’s the first sneak peak of one of the new paintings ( in the form of a teaser ad – so ignore the text at the bottom if you wish) :
So, I’m on the hunt for a venue. Any suggestions/offers email me at email@example.com . So far there are 4 paintings complete, each about 140cm square…with some slightly bigger ones to follow.
As usual the show is likely to be self funded (unless the offers come flooding in) so any help/donations or purchases of paintings will be greatly appreciated….AND WE’LL SOON BE ADDING THE PORTRAITS FROM BEFORE ENCORE 4 TO THE ART SALE SECTION so get your offers in quick!
