This is my first email of the year with a round up of what I have coming up in the next few months...
My 2019 challenge...
This year I have decided to set myself another challenge. I am creating 25 prints and 50 mini paintings. The paintings will be based on the same images I use to inspire the prints.
The idea behind this challenge is to develop my painting style, move the prints forward and to encourage a little cross pollination if possible.

Here is the first print of the year, Lakeside Puddles, with its two mini paintings:
And the second print, Grasmere Birches with it's two mini paintings:
I have really enjoyed creating these prints and their associated paintings. Both prints are quite large and were complicated to do, so I plan to work on a few smaller pieces next...
You can see these new prints listed in my website gallery and shop. The paintings are not for sale - at the moment anyway - as I may want to display them all together at some point. You are welcome to register your interest in them though, and definitely encouraged to let me know what you think about them :)
Artwork Gallery and Shop
I am also updating my facebook and instagram feeds with all of the work, plus adding them to a dedicated blog post on my website as they are created, so there are lots of ways to follow my challenge progress.
