Ch-ch-ch-changes

For the past couple of weeks, I've felt like I've been wrapping up yet another chapter of my life and career. I've nearly finished a number of long-standing commissions, including two in enamel that bring to an end my ten-year relationship with this toxic medium. In between, I've been clearing out of my store-room a number of older works, mostly studies in acrylic on paper for early enamel paintings, and offering them to a selected few of my favourite collectors. I've also completed the last of my sexually graphic series of watercolours, Kelly, The First Time. As for what comes next, I have a pretty clear idea (for once!). It won't be in Australia. This country is something else I want to put behind me. For a while, anyway.
