The serious and the quirky

You know I’ve always created images in completely different styles from a really young age. One serious and one quirky. The quirky confined to my sketchbooks.

I’ve listened the past couple of years to various internet art commentators about how you really should only put one style of work on your blog because it’s confusing for people otherwise. And where would that lead?

I’ve decided I’m ignoring that advice in 2014 and will incorporate somehow my quirky style  into my ‘serious’ paintings. I don’t know how . I’m just going to do it and see what happens.  What do you think?

    1. Thanks Jackie. We’ll see. Sometimes you think you want to do something quite intensely but it isn’t so good once you do it. But you never know until you do.
