Sneak Preview of my new Spring Park Bench oil painting on canvas, close-up detail

Here’s a detail of my current painting for the Anxiety and Release collaboration for Artipeeps artists’ group from Cambridge. I’m responding to a poem by a poet from Canada called Rod Kok who  I’ve been teamed up with. He’s written a poem responding to ‘anxiety’, and I’m interpreting the ‘release’ part. It comes out of my Spring Park Bench explorations that I’ve been sharing on this blog. I’ve done some more painting on it today. The light was wonderful and  I’m really getting into it. I don’t want to give away too much just yet. The whole thing will be published on April 15th by Artipeeps on their website, so you’ll see the poem and the painting together. I’m still in the middle of it. I’ve a feeling that I’ll be making another painting to go with this one, we’ll see. I’m revelling in the lush oil colour on the canvas. Listening to The Who Quadrophenia in case you’re interested whilst I work.
