With my Alan Furneaux head on I am finishing off pieces to go to London. My studio looks nice with a few pieces I have collected over the Summer especially an Angus painting which I can see every time I walk in. As you know I don`t like to let anything go unless I am completely happy with it hence the extensive work on this one. The sea colour for example has been changed many times.and the buildings..well.. I `ve lost count of the changes.

Ok. So now that I have seperated the darker paintings from the lighter ones with two seperate identities I no longer need to post these paintings on this blog. Whoopee!! I here some people say. So here is a very early an Alan Furneaux to get us started again.....

Have been so busy with paperwork-and trying to work out where I am with my painting. Again I have been thinking I might have a pseudonym so I can keep on with this darker toned work. I can`t seem to marry the two moods, happy and melancholy. I am sure at some stage I will want to paint in cheerful colours, but not right now. Managed to make a start on this done from one of my sketches.

oil on paper set in a jet black frame.

The darker colours I finally realized give mood and an `inner` colour or space.

This is oil on paper. I am using paper because it is cheap and I can practice painting cats which aint easy.
This looks like the sinister looks I get from our `Izzy` when she wants food.
Not there yet but refusing to give in.
With a bit of luck it should lead to something nice.

Sorry folks. This is probably the worst painting I have ever painted.
But that is how it goes.. I can however see how my subconscious is reflecting what is going on in my life right now. As I have been through a private trauma.This picture is an accurate portrayal . A Jungian ,`s dream.

Working from my drawing with mixed media on paper. Just need to re-draw that strange lump on her back that I hadn`t noticed. Otherwise a nice looking image.  Oh! and the bum.....  a bit of a characuture...

and  then this pops up.     Maybe the way to resolve my problem is to paint on black. emmmm.......
Now I am a bit stuck. I`ve painted in the second cat and the obvious boats ,Oh and re painted the Sun in desperation because it all looks a bit ......Grey.     Maybe it`s the second cat........ emmmm!
