Cool studio

Monday 11. 01. 21 It is quite cool today so did this small still life in the kitchen. I have ordered a portable heater for the studio but it won’t be here until Thursday!

New Project

Friday 08. 01. 21 I think that I have a new project. I am reading Que Ma Joie Demeure by Jean Giono and I’m hoping to do a set of monoprints based on the book and archival photos.


Monday 04. 01. 21 Finished this portrait of Maureen this afternoon. I am hoping to give it to Arch House as a memorial of Maureen and all the happy years that she spent there.

New Year’s Eve

Thursday 31. 12. 20 Did this small painting of the hyacinths and worked on a portrait of Maureen and myself.

New Life

Tuesday 29. 12. 20 My Hyacinths have come into bloom and their scent is wafting gently through the kitchen reminding me that Spring is out there somewhere.


Saturday 26. 12. 20 Enjoyed a socially distanced, tasty, vegetarian, Christmas dinner chez Dot & John together with George & Laurene yesterday. In the evening Zoomed with the family in Toronto.

Christmas Eve

Thursday 24. 12. 20 Decided I needed a tree to complete my Christmas in France this year so made this for my dining table out of foamcore.


Wednesday 23. 12. 20 Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happier New Year.

Shaping the World

Tuesday 22. 12. 20 Treated myself to the above book by Antony Gormley and Martin Gayford. A wonderful dialogue on the history of sculpture. It was so good that I didn’t even get to work in the studio today!


Saturday 19. 12. 20 This a portrait of my eldest granddaughter who will be getting married next year.
