I'd like to share something with you. I love to experiment.
I've always believed that you have to take risks to find out something new about yourself and your work. It's a wonderfully cathartic feeling. A bit scary and giddy at the same time. Like a fairground ride.
And one thing I've learned is that you can't get it right every time. But that's OK. And in the privacy of my art studio, I sometimes throw caution to the wind with variable results. And every now and then, something fab happens. Something unexpected. Happy accidents and serendipitous delights unfold before me and I dance around the room.
Much of the work that fits into this category I sometimes call 'work in progress', other times I call it 'an artist's proof' or or simply an 'experimental work'. I've built up quite a body of these trial pieces. I enjoy the process and so I always have new stuff happening ongoing.
This gave me an idea. Why not share the best of these pieces in a special corner of my website and call it ...
Artist's Proofs and Experimental work
Over the last 12 years, some of my most successful series of paintings have evolved out of these creative risk-taking sessions.
So take a look at what I have hanging in my virtual Artist's Proofs gallery. Because they are 'one off' experiments, I have priced them to be really affordable. When they're gone, that's it.
