Finally I will be setting up my easel again next week. It has been far too long and I am now desperate to get a brush back in my hand! But any artist out there must surely share my love of new brushes, so I was on the outlook for new ones when I stumbled across a news item about sign writing and it reminded me that this was my late Grandfather's trade. The sign writer, Joby Carter, was using some beautiful brushes to create his trim lines so I went looking around the internet for some and found just what I was looking for at Handover Brushes, so I'm hoping to be in possession of them to start my new piece on Monday.
As to what my "new piece" will be? No idea, I'll wait for inspiration to strike I suppose, I do have a potential commission for an abstract piece, I also have some great reference shots from my two weeks on Capri, Italy plus a few shots taken by my partner of crop fields with beautiful vibrant poppies shooting through them. So, we will see on the day which way I go
