The best thing is getting your work seen. I have been invisable for most of the year, but busy doing essentials... not art. I'm sure art is essential to, but in my world, has given way to other priorities. I went to Tiree for a holiday and refreshed my need to paint. My daughter has appointed herself my art agent and got me going. It is great to be producing artwork again. Here is my latest effort. A Castle in the Snow. A Watercolour.... what else!

Why is it that the thing you love seems to get further away as your desire to do it increases?
Or is it just me! I seem to have done very little this year, but busy as a bee.
More artwork is required. And soon. . . .

A pencil drawing of the Woodside Hotel in Aberdour, Fife.
I have included the street frontage and exaggerated the curve of the road to add importance to the Hotel. As always, I distort and reconfigure the proportions. The ‘view’ of this iconic building in sunny Aberdour, stays true despite my eyes interpretation. I started the drawing as a tonal sketch, in preparation of a watercolour, but I so enjoyed the use of the pencil... I completed the drawing as a ‘finished’ work. Some day I will return to do the watercolour.

2012. New Year, new expectations and new challenges. One of mine is to have an exhibition of artwork in the summer. I had a good year in 2011, and it just got better as the year progressed. Using last year’s momentum to propel me into the coming year will help. I hope your year will be good for you.
I am looking to collaborate with other local artists, so please let me know if you are keen to work together for mutual benefit. My email address is glen@glencraigart.co.uk and the web site is http//www.glencraigart.co.uk
The artwork is a painting inspired by a holiday in Tiree. It's title: 'sunset on the croft'.
A watercolour about 300 x 300 mm.
