I originally meant to use this site as a gallery, but in the learning process I started using it as a blog. Today I decided to create a second WP site, Painterly Collage, to be my gallery.
With that done I will to continue to post here — even more frequently, I hope — about my my work as an artist and designer, works in progress, and general thoughts. Completed work — including painting and drawing as well as collage — will go on Painterly Collage.
I owe the impetus for this move to my friend, artist Tom Furey. Tom continually inspires me to work harder and to be more professional. He has been doing a painting a day (in oil alla prima) for almost as long as I’ve known him; he has an invincible work ethic and generous spirit as well as tremendous talent. I’m very lucky to be associated with him at the Centre for the Arts in Bristol.
