We have finally moved and almost settled into the new house. My new studio is nearly ready, which is part of the house now. At the end of May I will be moving from 725 North Western, where I had my studio for nearly eight years. Unfortunately, not much work has been done lately, mostly just packing.
Alongside "Cracks", I have been working on a series of "Family Portraits". These are more character vignettes done on a large scale - all eight by seven feet. While not exactly traditional portraits, searching for a likeness, they are intended as an emotional representation and include my Mother, Father and Brother. A self-portrait will be the last. Maybe more will come later?
And this year I have also embarked on a long thought about Book Project which will ultimately comprise six books of drawings from the following catagories: animals, flowers, self-portraits, portraits, face, head or body parts, abstract, still-life, interiors, tableau, family, nude figure, erotic, landscapes, anti-war, psychic states, etc.
