In the past year or so some things have been good, and other things have been less good. Mostly good I am glad to say. But one of the less good happenings was the sudden closure of a very promising art gallery chain.

It happens that retail art galleries come and go, sigh!

Usually they vanish leaving artists penniless and without their art.

Not so this time because the gallery staff gave me a warning and a chance to get my work back just before their bailiffs came in.

The gallery directors had been wooing me to create and supply paintings and prints for a while. Eventually I had painted a small set of new work as requested featuring Trevor the Cat. The pictures were created using a very specific technique. An earlier style of mine that is nothing like my current cityscapes or landscapes.
