I’ve cracked! – but perhaps that in itself is a good sign. After a year and a half of not exhibiting any of my paintings except here – and not many here either, – as part of the welcome change which is seeing me write and paint a bit again I have submitted three works to Open Exhibition, The Cut, Halesworth, Dec ’17 – ’18. This in itself is a matter of supreme inconsequence to anyone but myself, but for me it is quite a big step after months of ‘blockage’ and inaction (artistically – I’ve done quite a lot of other things in other fields). Come to think of it, all three of these paintings were nevertheless done in 2017.
The three paintings submitted are what are now the first two works in The Gallery here (‘Blue stone’ and ‘Images in landscape’, and ‘Crop-marks’ further down in The Gallery (all three below).
I’ve exhibited in this exhibition several times before (without ever selling anything!). The Cut is a good space to show in and the occasion, though ‘open’, is of sufficient repute to attract not just good local artists but also several excellent artists from further afield so that it typically contains half a dozen or so outstanding works.
