New Paintings: September - November 2016

I have been working on new paintings on canvas these past few weeks. I find I am slowing down, taking longer, but that is not a bad thing. The pictures when they do come are, in the main, more satisfying. The visual solutions often come from accidents, erasures, overpainting - as much organic as anything preconceived. I find right now, when i do come to a conclusion i work quickly, but the images might hang around in the studio for a few weeks while i figure out what they are about. I have added these 6 new paintings in this series

Below are just 2 examples.

All of us are in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars
