All the new paintings.

All the images are up on the gallery website ready for the opening on Friday.
The paintings are wrapped waiting to load into the car to deliver to the gallery tomorrow. It will be a relief to reclaim the space they're taking up.

It's done.

Two small paintings are finished and have been drying over the last couple of days. Tomorrow they go to the framers. The invitations arrived at the gallery yesterday and I sent mine out this morning. All that's left is to label the paintings and wrap them ready for delivery on Sunday. My head is full of things to do so I've resorted to making lists.

Sunday in the studio.

Five hours in the studio on a Sunday should mean the painting is now finished. I thought it was and went off for a bowl of soup at lunchtime in the coffee shop below the studio feeling calm and relaxed. Just before leaving for the day I took another look. It's not finished - how depressing! I've been here before. It will come right!

Almost ready.

I have been in the studio all afternoon working on the final painting for the show. Tomorrow I expect to finish it. All the other paintings are framed waiting to go to the gallery next weekend. Providing the work on this last painting goes well, I feel I have everything in hand.

Images of Cardiff

The National Museum of Wales.

City Hall, Cardiff

On the way into work today I took some photographs of the civic centre where I had parked the car. This area is unchanged from the time I first came to Cardiff as a student. It was beautiful then and it still is!
