my new art blog - none railworks

I have started a new blog which for once has nothing to do with work.

http://art-of-dsiddle.blogspot.com/

Mostly it will be my own drawings and paintings.

I am not saying there will be no cross over, my hobbies often influence my work, however it will be mostly art talk.

cheers

Happy New year!

And so we are in the future! Exciting times ahead indeed.

So in prep of 2012 I felt the need to clean up my study. I spend over 10-12 hours a day in it so it often gets trashed quickly, paper/magazines/books etc everywhere.





I am lucky to have such a space I know but growing up I shared a room with my 2 brothers and never had any space to spread out my work. I remember oil painting sat on the bedroom floor, room stinking of turps, oil paint splodges on the carpet etc. (not that you could tell mind, the carpet pattern was so hideous)

Anyway, here is to a creative 2012.

all the best.
