What a couple of weeks. Flying out to Pori Finland for my exhibition with John Rogers at Galleria Elise. A great opening night and a brilliant response.
Back to Sheffield to do “LIVE ART” . Painting while Jim Ghedi and Neal Heppleston played songs from the forthcoming album “Satori ” . I named my piece “Satori” as I painted directly on to the wall at The Audacious Art Experiment.
Coming up next I will be exhibiting in the Great Longstone Art Show .

Journey’s End: “The Golden Eye of the Supreme”.
The inspiration for these paintings finds me seeking to break free of former ideas and concepts . “ Miles Beyond “ (2) was a breakthrough . Inspired by the space and freedom found in the intricate music I discovered the “zen calligraphy” that echoes through nature . Branches , star clusters, bird flight , winding rivers and horizons , leaf and stalk shapes. They are all around but we often miss their beauty and message.
All but one piece now winging their way to Finland . Prints and cards all done , thank you Billy Bye!
12 pieces plus a surprise . All titles interconnected with “the Red Thread between nothingness and eternity” and The Mahavishnu Orchestra’s “Birds of Fire ” album .
