I'm genuinely trying to make each one identical, so the slight differences that occur between each painting fascinate me, as do how the paintings change over time. What I'm doing is a productive form of naval gazing I guess, and also a form of mediation. It is very satisfying to come out of a very deep thought after hours of contemplation and find myself surrounded by paintings that I've made.
I retired a lot of my motif's last year. And have been working on a lot of new paintings.
I did not retire Formed A Band though. Formed A Band is my favourite painting to make. I've made and sold more than 200 of them, all in different sizes.
I love the fact that there are hundreds of Formed A Band paintings out there, resting on peoples shelf's or hung on peoples walls. I'm an idiot, so believe in magic and I honestly believe that is a mystical energy being released from this motif being out in the wild, that powers my DIY endeavours. I'd turn it into wallpaper if I could and then try and convince people to plaster their houses with it. TILL I BECOME ALL POWERFUL.
While I didn't retire the Formed A Band motif. I did presume that everybody who wanted one already had one. I have had a few email requests though of people asking if they could buy one for their loved one for a Christmas present so I am making some this week.
For this week only if you'd like to buy a Formed A Band painting. You can get them from my shop.
They are 40 x 30 cm, acrylic paint on canvas board.
