I think most artists find it difficult to part with their work but it’s the parting that keeps us alive and keeps us working. In the case of the chariot, although it’s been sold I actually still have it, just in another form.
Everything in creation has its appointed painter or poet and remains in bondage like the princess in the fairy tale ‘til its appropriate liberator comes to set it free.

a few weeks ago i attended a visiting artists lecture by Rachel Goodyear, i absolutely loved her work, it has this very surreal, even uncomfortable feel to it.
these linear studies and limited use of colour remind me of my favourite artist David bray.
Rachel uses this continuity of a black mass within her work, this seems to take on the form of many different entities and feeling’s, in this particular piece the black mass seems to take on quite a ghostly form this gathering reminds me of a seance

Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.
i think that in year 3 i would like to work more with botanical drawings and perhaps construct a journal packed with all my studies this could be made up from text, images photographs ect.
i would also like to prehaps produce some quite detailed etchings and screen prints.
Here is a piece by Annie Patterson, i love how she combines her love for growing and finding plants with painting.
i think that her work contains a lot of texture, each colour seems to contain many different shades, her paintings focus on each vein smotherd layer and delicate fold, i love the various mark making techniques and attention to detail.
