Two pages with two pens poised! And I only write left-handed. Oops, I forgot it is all via a keyboard. Two different sites really. Some of you may have noticed one less blogger tapping at your inbox. I feel it’s time to report in. In March this year I undertook an Art Business course to … More A pen poised over two pages
Just a few Mondays ago I wished I was still in paid work. Really? Well, only for the early morning conversations. “What did you do on the weekend?” I had had the BEST weekend, so probably better that I didn’t go in to work that Monday. (Murdered with Paper Cuts by Jealousy in the Photocopying … More Inside Sheffield

Perhaps you would all like to see! This series of pictures reminds me of my work with brain-injured people. A particular test … More Early morning visitors
The proprietor of the fine art rat cafe (John Clinock) has requested some more street art images from Melbourne. So here goes. Once again I am sorry that the works are unattributed. Perhaps you recognise some of the sticker art. Posting these reminds me of my colleague Nigel @ Little bits of Sheffield. He knows … More Marvellous Melbourne!
Painting…that’s what I’m here for! So I’ve got to get some going again. It feels like ages since I had any flow. The (SALA) open studio door meant only bits n pieces of work going on. Lovely to meet the people but PR is quite difficult for someone who is used to solitary confinement (albeit … More Early retirement? No, just a tea-break.
