On Friday I decided to have a (very impromptu) studio sale of drawings and paintings. I didn’t actually realise it was Black Friday (THE patron day of sales, apparently) so it was somewhat well timed. It has been quite cathartic to release older work into the world, especially one of the very first ‘good’ oil paintings I made where I felt something click - but I like to recall a Michael Borremans quote about it being important to sell the work you like the best and want to hold on to. The paintings from my show “Still” all felt a bit emotional to let go of, but it makes me happy to know that they will have happy homes. Anyway, there are still some bits and pieces available over on my instagram, including a few oil on linen panel studies, and a drawing or two.
