All change for the New Year ….
Now a painter of portraits, white paintings and studies for real.
I am looking for life class teaching and now must exhibit too. I’ve ever had a five-year plan of teaching painting courses and trying to take my more expansive drawings towards the portrait market and now that’s my imminent plan.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
Sounded good when Beckett said it, as a guide for painting. Now rather more than pertinent. Either I was appointed to the job I couldn’t do or I really couldn’t resist painting any longer. St Paul’s Girls’ is a vibrant and demanding school, but the Art there will not be directed by me.
In the studio, a pencil drawing emerges and three oil paintings explore flat forms.
