I have been a bit of a hermit over the last few months while working on a Deity series. ‘The Goddesses & Gods’.  As inspirational as this has been personally, it has left me a little insular and hiding away with my paints, palettes and brushes.  I am happy to say that visits from family and friends have brought me out of my painting and research hovel, and a few commissions required a refocus of subject matter.  It never hurts to walk away for a while, to play in the sun, to watch nature, to listen to loved ones and to dance in the rain.  The palette knife has danced its way back into my work after a long absence and I am enjoying the weight and structure of the paint as it piles on.
