Each thing in its time, in its place

The wavering shadows lay

I’ve been doing a few more small paintings on paper. I might do a few more before moving on to larger ones again. I need to paint more often. Not painting has become a bad habit! Also thanks to everyone for following this blog and liking my posts – you’re all awesome!

First up is the painter Alexandra Pacula whose work is absolutely incredible. Think : being drunk in a … Continue reading
