Coffee, lights, action!

Been spending the morning photographing new and old paintings for the website. Naming, shaming, pricing… 

Smile boys!


Drinking Wine, Gaz Coombes and Doodles

I’m drinking wine (it was a free bottle, you should never let those things go to waste) and trying to come to some sort of magic number for selling artwork at the Maidenhead Art on the Street fair in a few weeks time http://www.artonthestreet.org.uk/ all this while listening to Gaz Coombes new album (I can’t multitask, but it’s fun trying)

Instead I’ve come up with these. If I carry on one of them might turn into a number.

Money, Lack of it and a Sketch of a Naked Woman

The inevitable question I think every creative person faces at least once in their lives is ‘do I follow my aspirations to create, or do I join the real world and really focus on a career?’

I mean what is the real reason for us being on the earth? To get a mortgage, spend half your life in a place you’d rather not be in order to afford a mortgage… Eat junk food to fill up that weird void (that void is usually depression from suppressing your natural creative urges).

Anyway, I digress. I’m currently working out if I can afford to take three days off a month to be creative and hopefully make money from it… Ouroboros. Also, how on earth do you push your art onto the world without becoming the corporate monster you want to leave behind.

Money money money, you dirty whore. We love you, we hate you, we can’t live without you.

I’ll just keep on waiting.
