Grab it and run.

Look quickly before it’s gone...

‘Beyond the reach of night’

Recently I had a panel with a red under painting 
then I added some blue and black, scratching out 
some shapes and scribbles.  

It sat in my studio for about three weeks.

Then one day I decided to add some more colour...

‘Bang the drum, Summer is next’

You can see it has changed considerably.
Some marks remain visible to tell it is the one before.

However, my picture didn’t last long.

Off we go went through another re-work
which covered all the previous paint.

Several layers of oil and cold wax were applied,
then smoothed, rolled, scraped and scratched.

The painting was turned around and placed in a
heavy gilt type wood frame which was in my studio.

Here it is...
the only evidence of its previous life
is just visible.  A tiny red fragment top right. 

‘Quietly open the woodland door’

Oils and cold wax medium on panel.

The moral of the story?

If you visit an artist’s studio and see 
something you would like to own...

Buy it quickly and run.
Before it disappears.

Until next time...
Thank you for visiting.
