My focus for the 2019 exhibition is on portraiture. Portraits of friends and family and their dogs, their dogs' friends and family, not to mention horses, bulls, painted wolves... You name it.
There is also the first appearance on stage of my interest in the tragic figures of mythology and theatre, a series I will call, well, Tragic Figures. Pompous, me? Nah. Just a little fun.
So Bully Boy comes back this year as a study for the head of the Minotaur. Or the Minotaur's dad?
But just watch out for those Amazons!

Amazons in Greek Mythology are the women without breasts, prehaps because of the requirements of archery, in which the Amazons excelled, or more prosaically,a sexist attitude on the part of the men who wrote the myths.
