Clouded Yellow Butterfly Stanmore August 5th 2019

 

There are lots of lovely butterflies in flight right now although it’s hard to capture them in a half decent photo. Just about made it above.

Tomorrow I’m leaving for a 2 week holiday & am looking forward to rest, recreation and time to think.
As mentioned previously the business year has been unpredictable and tough going. I’m still working on breaking the mould with new ideas and designs.
It’s not an easy process as there are potential risks as well as rewards in moving away from my tried & tested artistic themes.
Fortunately, enquiries are still hitting my website and its that activity which keeps me fired up.

My work on ‘Zoe’ the gymnast (see below) has faltered.
I know how I want her to look, but as yet I’m not quite there. I’ve put her on ice for a couple of weeks and will restart work on her in September.

The peaceful scene from Sarratt Green whilst out cycling last weekend.

And finally two heart shaped works, at the moment these are my favourite themes.
