Two art shows have come and gone. This is me with my paintings at the Pegasus Bay Art Show on opening night… and a fun night it was too. I made a grand total of zero sales, which made me sad, but, hey, the worst day in the best job in the world is still better than the best day in a job you don’t enjoy, right?!
I wallowed in my disappointment for a couple of days (damn you, expectations!) and now I’m back to my factory preset optimism. But I am running out of room to store all these paintings… So if you would like to help me reclaim some space in the art cave, there is 25% off the price of all paintings in my Etsy shop from now until the end of the month.
Another milestone. They seem to come around a little quicker every year. Is that possible? My WordPress blog turns FIVE today! To mark the occasion, here is a slideshow of a few of my favourite paintings from the last year.
I am celebrating my anniversary with a 25% off sale on Etsy — a thank you to my readers and followers for your encouragement and support over the years. Apply the code [ ArtCaveTurns5 ] at checkout to get 25% off the listed price of everything… paintings, cards, even commissions! The offer will run until the end of March 2017.

I tend to thrive on deadlines, creating them for myself even if I don’t have to because it makes me more productive, but this month I have no projects demanding urgent attention. And I’m still managing to get a few things done.
Here are a couple of little drawings I’ve just finished and listed on Etsy:
The Return, diptych, #1 — ink and watercolour, 90 x 90 mm, 2016
The Return, diptych, #2 — ink and watercolour, 90 x 90 mm, 2016
Worth the Risk — ink and watercolour, 128 x 128 mm, 2016
