While clearing out my studio i found some old canvases.. . . .really old canvases! I haven’t painted on canvas for a few years now but was at a lost as to what to do with them, i certainly didn’t want to keep the atrocities that had gone before but i also didn’t want to waste such good resources. i left it for a couple of days then it hit me, chop off all the canvas and use the wooden frames to create boxed frames…. . . here it is so far. . . . The old paintings are now gone forever. . … . ./. . unseen.. ./// ./
I’ve got a lot on my plate this month preparing for my third solo show at the Jewry St. Gallery, Winchester (starting 16th Feb) building frames and adding finishing touches to the pieces on show. Not that I’ve fully decided which pieces will be on show… . .
At the same time I’ve got more preparation for the ‘Retracing the Unsinkable’ exhibition this march in Southampton, and for the ‘Celebrating Life’ exhibition in Winchester. As well as that I’ve still got to keep myself occupied painting new pieces for who knows when so i don’t loose my mind. . .. .. . /. all is well in the studio of Belbin.. . .. . . / . / . /.. // .
This Is Clean.. . … / . /
Those of you aware of my work would have noticed i DON’T paint faces, But this face i had to paint, its a portrait on my little brother.. .. …. .. .. . . . .. /.
