I am finally back in the warmth of my homeland and readjusting to the tropical weather – it’s really not so hard! I loved my time in the UK and there are so many things I will miss but I am sure that once I have adjusted to ‘island time’ again I will be fine. I am already feeling the health benefits of the Cayman Islands climate.
Before leaving England I began work on a whimsical series of views of Cayman – the way I remember it from my childhood. There are three paintings so far and as they are so new they are as yet untitled. All are acrylic on canvas.
My hope is that once the series is completed that I will be able to produce an extensive catalogue of reproductions including cards, stationery, calendars and full size prints, probably giclees. I’d love to hear what people think about these pictures – are they worth pursuing? I think they have great commercial potential although being such a departure from what I really love doing it is hard to convince myself of their artistic merit. I still love ’em though!
I will be back soon to share more new work and tales from my show in the UK back in November but I hope that for now you will enjoy these recent pieces.
