Today offered a score of excuses for not getting back down to painting and sculpting. Not least was Denise’s determination to do the week’s baking. Without a model, I’m stumped. However, as followers of my diary know by now, I can work fast and I can take my subjects as I find them. So, when Denise said, “Okay you’ve got fifteen minutes while the bread rises.” I grabbed my chance.
I started my on-line diary in the 1990's from my studio in the North of England. After a lapse of ten years, I resumed the enteries from my present studio on the Caribbean island of Dominica. From the far beginning, my intention was to give an insight into my working methods, and to share the triumphs, trials and tribulations of work-in-progress.
Now, by way of a change, these pages will focus on finished work, both recent and retrospective. As Dominica has recently been ranked as one of the least visited places on earth, it is one way of bringing the mountain to Mohammed.
