I am going to have some paintings at a group show in London.
The show will open on the 8th of June at Cricket Fine Art, 2 Park Walk, Chelsea.
I am very happy to have started a collaboration with this gallery which represents artists such as Chloe Lamb  and Valeriy Gridnev.

I will be showing some flower paintings; among the several I painted recently the ones chosen for the show were the ones with a summery feeling.
I very much enjoy painting flowers and I quite like the urgency of the subject matter, since they change so fast. I try not to stop painting once the flowers have died; I keep working from my memory, tiding up and simplifying some areas, building up layers of paint.

I'm so happy to have found your blog and really look forward to every post now.

This is beautiful! I love the brushwork in flowers above. Is the painting really this low key? I ask because I looked at a histogram of the image and it uses about half of the value range and it's all in the lower half. Just wondering.

Thank you Sileno !
J, the photo of the painting is rather close to real life on my screen, but I am not sure about its calibration. The lightest light is the highlight on the jug and it is perhaps value 8 in Munsell.
Thank you for following me, I hope I will manage to write something interesting enough !

It's gorgeous. I too just discovered your work, can't wait to see more floral still lifes.

I like your work, with that little geometric construction
And the application of the patches of color.
