Being an intractable insomniac I am trying to use those night time waking hours usefully I suppose. My brain is awash with colour and ideas from about 3am onwards and I could so easily get up and begin my day then. I choose not to at the moment and am enjoying the very beginnings of the first bird’s song through to the joyous uproar of the dawn chorus.
I am working on a series of paintings illustrating the sounds and textures of those dark hours. I framed this one yesterday and it’s ready to go.The image size is 12″ square and it’s in a nice deep box frame. It’s called “Night Garden”
I keep in mind, as I paint, how the birds sing just for the sake of singing. Just because they have to. Just because that is what they are made to do. Just for the joy….
I have an Open Studio on June 25th and 26th at Newhampton Arts Centre from 10-4 as part of Wolverhampton’s very first Art Trail. More details and a map of all the open studios will follow here as soon as I get one.

Note: the above painting sold this morning. I’m working on the next in the series.
