I just got reminded why I’m not a member of any groups and societies. Against my better judgement I joined two this year and left two this year, you’d have thought I should have known better, it won’t happen again!. I really do not enjoy groups, clubs, societies etc., they can go their way in peace and I’ll go mine. 🙂
As the new year nudges ever closer I started thinking about which of my many works from 2018 was my personal favourite. I’ve had another prolific year and completed a heck of a lot of new works but one stood out from the others.
Sometimes a work comes together almost exactly as one envisaged it when taking the shot and this is one such work. I’ve had more successful and popular works but I have a soft spot for this work. It comes out of my “tree” period and was my first and only work to get to no.1 in the Olympus European Users Gallery.
I’ve been lucky enough to travel many miles overseas this year and visit some beautiful locations but, as things would have it, this work of a tree was taken less than a couple of miles from my home. 🙂
You can also find it gathering dust on page 23 of my new book and in (another) quiet corner of my latest online exhibition. 🙂
I did a video promo tour featuring some of the works in my new online exhibition. https://artspaces.kunstmatrix.com/en/exhibition/218740/paintography-by-leigh-kemp
