It’s been a year and two months since my last post, I have a condition called Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, but was lucky enough to get on the transplant list and was given a left lung transplant in June this year. It has been a slower recovery process than I anticipated but I have been drawing regularly and the image above “September Evening, at Chapel St. Leonards” and is the first painting I have completed since the transplant. I live by the coast, I have for the past 30 years, and so I have used imagery and memories that were close at hand to research and draw upon. A few friends have had beach huts here and I have enjoyed many good days with them on the beach. The image below “Beach Huts, Chapel St. Leonards” is the second completed from a series of six I will complete.
Hope you enjoy them and if you have any comments about the work would love to hear from you. Both images are Acrylic on panel and measure 50cm x 50cm.
In the New year I have plans for two exhibitions in 2020 and a couple of Open Studio events, so keep looking in for info or indeed follow me and I will keep you up to date.
