Just out of Reach
She was surrounded by nature, everything about her was in tune with her surroundings, she had become at one and felt balanced but there was a hunger and desire for something else which eluded her. a shattered glass barrier reminded her just how close she was, close enough to touch, close enough to smell.... but somehow she still felt very far away.

This print will launch for $25 from  - one day flash sale 27th Jan 2016 from 10:30am (PST) 
Please note the price increases by $1 for each sale.

Long time no Journal Entry...

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 5, 2013, 6:31 AM

Thought it was about time I said 'Hi' in the Journal and stopped being so antisocial.... seems like I have less and less time nowadays and so this seems the best way to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has been following my work both here and elsewhere.  It has been a very busy year for both artwork and homelife and I am getting used to juggling the two and dividing my time up better - there is less time however for sharing commenting and replying to people here but I WILL, I always do!  
I'm also very pleased to be opening a 2 man exhibition in London tomorrow night - the 6th September where I will be showing some artwork I have shared here on DA and some new works.... there will be new prints and postcard packs available and the work includes the fantastic paintings of Rowan Newton as well as myself and even includes a digitally assembled giclee print especially for the gallery (I know.... me and photoshop.... who'd have thought it)

So if you can ... please make a little trip to see the work at the Ben Oakley Gallery - it is situated inside greenwich market, South London, it's a lovely space and I know you'll get a great welcome there.

Big love to all
