In the next couple of weeks I'm hoping to finally sort out a new studio. There are a couple of options and I have the feeling that this time it will work out! We'll see!

Back from a few days in London. I saw the Degas exhibition at the Royal Academy and I'm very glad I did. I began to appreciate his study of movement and (something I didn't know) his association with Muybridge. It gave a depth to his work which extends beyond the image of ballet dancers on chocolate boxes. I didn't manage to get to the Tate to see Gerhard Richter. Next time - although I'll need to be quick, it ends in January.

My patience is paying off and after almost three weeks the muscle pain is retreating. I heard this morning that the gallery has sold a painting, one from a collection painted in France last summer. I can't wait to get back to work.

My paints remain packed away and an empty canvas on the easel stares back at me in the studio. It seems I have strained or pulled a muscle in my back which is very painful and it's needing all my patience in trying to make it better. So, for the time being, I am thinking about work, feeling a trifle frustrated but determined to get this sorted before tackling that blank canvas.
