Welcome to my blog


A journal of the ongoing exploration of painting. Continually trying to push the boundaries of my art practice.  The challenge is to reach the image in my head. Drawing is always my default starting point and then the materiality of the paint takes over to breathe life into the result.

Scotland, Garage Gallery at Aldeburgh - Sea of Stars

By valbrightjones, Apr 14 2019 04:09PM

I drove to Skye via the Lake District and Glen Coe recently. The scenery was mega inspiring wherever I went and now I'm home I just don't know where to start. So many memories fizzing in my head and copious drawings and photos but how to do them all justice? I think they'll have to sit in my mind until I can figure out a way to begin.

Next I have to concentrate on making and sorting work for my exhibition in Aldeburgh at The Garage gallery which I'm sharing with Sarah Bale. We're calling it Sea of Stars. The title seemed to sum up some of our recent work.

Hope to see you all there May 23rd till 29th. Watch Instagram for details.
