I’ve been absent from here for too long. I’ve had direct messages from some wonderful people wishing me well and hoping for some new work to be posted. It’s been a difficult time recently as my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months ago. She has had surgery and is now going through radiotherapy. We are staying positive. I have been going through a no go period of creative output, trying to focus while life throws challenges at you is a difficult thing to do. Anyway folks here is finally something new. As ever I welcome your thoughts.

I wish good health and happiness to you all.....

‘Branches / Bones.’
From my ‘Invisible Soundtracks’ series of works inspired by song titles and lyrics. In the square format of the 7” single and 12” single/album artwork that was an integral part of my visual education growing up and that still influences my practice today.

I’m so sorry to hear your news, Robert - and I wish the two of you everything you need to negotiate this latest challenge. How have you found re-connecting with your art? Helpful? Not? Jury still out?

Wow, powerful stuff. I particularly love the symmetry juxta-ed with the body that isn’t exactly symmetrical (if that makes any sense). Oh, and that gorgeous rose tint.

I am so sorry to hear about your wife’s cancer. I know first-hand how hard it is to watch when a loved one has to go through all of those bloody awful hospital procedures, meeting perfectly lovely people who are there to help, but who you never would have chosen to meet if things had been different and who you hope you’ll never have to see again when it’s all over. My heart goes out to you in particular. Watching and waiting. But staying positive is key and trusting in the experts. Never underestimate the vital role that you play in all of it - your love and support is as essential as all of those hospital procedures. :inlove:
