A slight change of plan...

Got the MDF today, all ready to make the shelves and backings, but a slight change of plan for February… I’ve got another commission for a set of paintings I won’t be able to blog, which is great for me…but not so interesting for you…So building work largely on hold while I get these new pieces done…we’ll see how it goes :)

Phase one finished...

Finished the carcase for the counter today, so that’s the first phase of this room done. I’ll pick some MDF next Friday, so progress will now have to wait until I’ve done that ….time for some sleep… :)

Shop building part 1

The commission I’ve been working on was delivered earlier this week and the Studio looks very empty now all the paintings have gone; it was packed this time last week :) I’m now moving onto converting the Gallery room into a more inviting shop space(soon to be called ‘The Cuckoos Nest’) . The first job is building the carcases for the shelves…I’ll keep posting as I go, so you can see how it develops. :)

Welcome to 2012

Things were a little quiet in here towards the end of last year so I thought it was high time for a new post.

The Exhibition went well, many thanks to all that came along :) Some good sales, so I was able to eat this Christmas. The framing side of things is coming together, some new equipment to order later this month and then I’ll start advertising in the spring.

I've been working on a number of commissions which I’m unable to post on here for contractual reasons, I can’t really talk about them much either, but they’re proving to be very educational and lots of fun from my point of view. The current batch of those should be finished later this month, so you’ll see some proper posts and new work after that :)

That’s it, other than to wish you all a very Happy New Year :) G x
