The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

"Happy Family"

" The Good , The Bad and The Ugly" as this was a rather raced painting.
I think it is healthy as artists to show "Our best",
 our "Not so best" 
and "The paintings that got away" by not making the grade !

 Actually I should call the above painting " Baby Its Cold Outside" because the weather here in UK is freezing. Yesterday apparently was World Penguin Day and I missed it.  It is very strange how I never seem to miss the special annual cake or chocolate days but I did miss this one, which is a shame as I love painting penguins. So a day late, here is the penguin family I painted complete with new fluff ball at the parents feet.

I am working hard on future tour organisation and replying to many wonderful invitations from Art Societies wishing to host my events, which is so terrific. I would love to come everywhere and to everyone but physically that isn't possible. But I do look at each location and if it is possible try to work out a way to get there. Right now I am looking ahead to 2018.

To USA artists wishing to know where I will be next year here is my planned schedule.

February 2017
New Orleans ( Open for booking )
Arizona  ( Bookings open in July 2016 )
Florida ( Open for booking )

October 2017
Seattle ( Open for booking )

I love this watercolor, very spontaneous and loose.

I checked your website, and there's nothing listed for Feb 2017 in Florida... can you include a link? I'd love to see you in person, I've been a huge fan for years and years.

So funny to come across this the good the bad the ugly...i just used the same term to describe the stages of a painting and how all paintings go through that ugly phase. Just thought funny
