'...the tyres rushing by in the rain'

oil on canvas, 20 x 20cms, 2015
I made these three small paintings over a couple of evenings. I picked up the first small, square canvas after completing the paintings in the last post; keen to keep on working while I had paints out and my head in the right place.  Before I knew it I had completed the three canvasses.

There is something that has happened with that one that moves me, and definitely does not quite feel of my own making.

I heard today that I will now be having a solo show with Cupola Gallery in Sheffield between October-November later in the year. It will be at a large café venue in the centre of Sheffield that they develop and manage the exhibition program for. It will be a great opportunity, and they don’t mind what I show. It’s entirely up to me. I’m already thinking some of these lorry paintings should feature.
