Lives Lived

I have a house full of sick kids, a badly leaking toilet, no money and less than 48 hours til I pack my art into the car and whizz it up the motorway for my first solo show.

You know, I had a specific idea of what my first solo show would be like - fab opening, work I was proud of, loads of mates by my side.... instead it's going to be thrown together, half-finished art, me on my own chucking it at a wall and then shooting back down the motorway. What a weird life it can be.... perhaps I shouldn't have called it Lives Lived, perhaps that was just too much of an invitiation for the gods...

aah the relief...

of having finished the Dulwich show! Of course most of the aceos are still up, but officially it is over. The Burton work is going better, fortunately and I have a number of works in progress to share.

Show and tell....

So the Chicago show was and is a hit - hooray!
The Dulwich show is a sloooooow burner - ie no sales but people are curious.
The Burton show is... imminent and a NIGHTMARE! I have lost the knack, lost the plot, lost my muse. These are as far as I have got (and these were a breakthrough, so be kind...)

I'm so excited...

...and I just can't hide it.... (as DJ Duck would undoubtedly continue)

I have sold my first proper painting in a proper gallery for a proper price....

I always knew Chicago would appreciate me more than London, lol

Exhibition fever takes its toll...

I used to look young and beautiful, now I look like this....
