Starting the year

Since taking the plunge last year and really beginning to contribute most of my energy into my art I have had a number of exhibitions including group shows in New York and Vienna.  2014 continues at a hectic pace with offers for a solo exhibition in Manhattan and a show in Bologna in March.  Even though I shouldn’t be surprised, it’s amazing how much of my time and energy is taken with managing promotion and organisation, compared to dedicated purely to painting.  I’m not complaining though, it's a nice problem to have.

I am starting an illuminated book, below is an study I worked on in 2012 as part of a series that will mix text and illumination.
