So here we are… 1 month into 2010 and I feel I should keep you all up to date with the latest very exciting news.

This month I painted another two ‘Painting Peace’ pictures – one was for Alan Rubenstein, the Managing Director of the JC (thank g-d I only found this out after as I would have been on schpilkas whilst painting it!) and another was for my dear friend Miri, who was so overcome with emotion when she saw the Original that I promised her one.

I also sold my lovely ‘Lily’ painting during a visit to Athena (a ladies networking group) so rather than having a blank space where it once lived in my lounge I have put up ‘Obama’ – not quite the same feel but still looks good. (This painting is for sale by the way!)

My dream of a celebrity client could be round the corner - It turns out I have got the opportunity to create a pop art concept for Duncan Bannatyne and James Caan through Janice Dalton, a fab lady I met at Athena. So I am trawling through the internet to find ‘the photo’ I have in mind to ‘pop’ and will get to work on these first.

Exhibition wise – we are thinking something along the lines of ‘Sign of the Times – Where We’re At.’ This would incorporate a collection of paintings that represent where we are in terms of anything from TV, Cars, Politics, Music or Sport. If you have any suggestions let me know – I will consider everything!

The collection will be complete and will tour the UK in September. Email to receive details of when & where the exhibition will be.

Big thanks to my Patron – the one and only Michael Maslen and of course Monique!
