Catch up

Ok. Every now and again I go Awol. So here's the excuses!

I went to Rome recently (October break) to gather research material for my next show. It will be a combination of work from LA, Rome and Scotland. I have loads of ideas, just need to sort them out logically in my head, so it doesnt look too much of a hotch-potch. The exhibition will be in the Open Eye Gallery, Edinburgh next October. I havent been to Rome for 20 years and it was so much better than I remembered. I walked myself to death but covered most of the city many times over. I produced a fair amount of sketches, ideas, photos and still life material to last me quite a while. Rome really makes you think, the history of western civilisation unfolds before your eyes, all it requires is a little imagination.
