Wild Fields - upcoming show

Honey Hive (for upcoming show)

It's been a while between posts. I've been so busy working on this show. I'm just about done (1 more week of working to go), I've been working 7 days a week since the end of Dec and am amazed at how little I've produced from so much effort. I will have 3-4 large drawings and 3 medium paintings, I guess art just take a long time with a fair amount of the work being preliminary - sketching, ideas, photographing models (thanks Suzie!), walking around the streets with a camera finding the perfect tree to match my sketch (sometimes I have to take bits from different trees and join then together).

I've decided to call the show 'Wild Fields' because it's the thing most common between all of the works. Maybe that's telling me I need to get outside a bit more?

I'm flying to LA in a week - can't wait! I haven't been overseas for 3 years - much too long.
