Knab End

Hidden rural quarry burnt at least five times in 2018 and often subject to arson. I found explosives in the rubbish. Making fires is a basic human trait and seems to take place in these hidden spaces. Meanwhile the quarry is just about recovering and the heather is promising this year. That will show in this series of paintings.

Above the Quarry

Do you feel the anticipation growing that the new normal might be okay? Bank holiday over and three exhibitions in the pipeline so back planning and painting. This one is now resolved with addition of lichen aka #yellowochre

Spanner Quarry
Non Diptych

Spanner Quarry in the Pennines. It’s a well known climbing spot. It’s part of a series of quarries called Running Hill Pits. I’m painting a series of quarries in my area for an exhibition in October.

In the studio putting recent work close together. Like clustering plants, paintings seem to communicate with each other when in the same space. It helps me to see connections too.

Work in Progress getting back to the oil paint but this time on paper. I like to get thin lines scratching through the luscious paint. Exploring Edges
